Shakiness Overview

Shakiness is a somewhat vague medical symptom that may refer to tremor, balance difficulty or emotional symptoms. Tremor is continual involuntary shaking, usually in the fingers or hands, although other body parts too. Tremor may occur from simple causes (e.g. caffeine, hypoglycemia, anxiety, adrenalin rush) or from disease causes (e.g. stroke, Parkinsonís disease, MS). Shakiness as an emotional symptom may refer to anxiety, fear, and other types of emotional concern. Physical shakiness may refer to balance difficulty such as dizziness or vertigo.
