Not sure. You should call your doctor to make sure it is not something else or a reaction to a medication or something else.

I was diagnosised with fibromyalgia 2 years ago. My neurologist had an awful time with the diagnosis becuase I had more neuro symptoms which looked identical to the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. Anyway, I have frequent tingling, loss of feeling, external tremors (including hands) and internal vibrations through out my body...which is not the "mainstream" for fibromyalgia symptoms. There is a WONDERFUL book out titled: Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain: A Survival Manual (2nd Edition) (Paperback)
by Devin J. Starlanyl, Mary Ellen Copeland. It explains ALL of the symptoms of fibromyalgia better than anywhere else I have seen. Matter of fact, I had to read this book in order to be convienced that I had fibromyalgia and not Multiple Sclerosis. My neurologist kept promising me that it was not Multiple Sclerosis, but I just didn't belive him until I read the book. I strongly suggest this book for any and everyone that has fibromyalgia.

I don't know if it is one of the normal symptoms of FMS, but a lot of the people here at this forum have complained of shakieness! As for myself, I can't call it morning till I've spilled coffee all over the place! My manicurist goes crazy when she does my nails!! I can't be still!!! She is always telling me to be still or chasing down my hands!! By the way she also happens to be my sister!

Teresa you've put a picture in my mind and I can't stop chuckling . sally5 I had very shakey hands in the early 90's. Gosh that shows how long ago fms was with me . This was about 8-9 years before my diagnosis. Anyway I called them tremors. (some would compare my shakiness to DTs) and the doctor put me on propranolol. My father used to have this shakiness so we just assumed it was hereditary at that time. The med did help and I've never stopped because it helped with highblood pressure and migraines.

Sally5, I have noticed that over the last year my hands get really shaky at times, especially if I'm overtired or hurting badly. Think this must just be part of it!
