Is it normal for your body to shake
4 Replies
Maggie - May 31

What disturbs me about my condition is not being able to control my body trembling and shaking when I am in pain.
I mentioned this to my Doctor and he said one can shake when one is so tense with pain.
However, I would not say I am so tense (like wanting to grit your teeth pain).
I went to pay some bills at the bank and as I was handing them over my hand was shaking like a very old woman and I am only 48.
Is this normal?

Did you know your insurance company dictates the tests you get and the answers your doctor dismisses as Fibromyalgia? I've been going through this crap now for over 7 years, and continue to worsen. Lung disease, thyroid disease, nodules, fevers, liver and kidney disease, and the list goes on... The fact that doctors don't even examine or even touch me anymore and keep dismissing my problems as "fibromyalgia" made me realize that there is a conspiracy going on. Go do an internet search on "Fibromyala dismissive" and read up on the controversy. Here's what I've had to do in order to have a physician finally admit that fibromyalgia is merely passive to satisfy the patient and keep the insurance company from paying to allow a correct diagnosis and treat you effetively. You really need to research your symptoms thoroughly. Print off the facts you find, ask for specific testing and most important of all...BRING A WITNESS TO YOUR DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS. You must drill your doctor with your witness present why they don't test for other possibilities based on the facts. Be sure and request copies of your tests so you have the information you need to keep researching the possibilities.'re in for a rough future, and paying for the insurance company's profitability through your suffering. Best of luck!

Its very true that doctors don't listen to fibromyalgia patients and while I plan on searching "Fibrolyagia dismissive" I don't truly believe it is a conspiracy. They just don't know, and while thats a poor excuse, it is a reason. As to shaking...I think its pretty normal. As long as your shaking is subtle and not constant you should be fine. I find it happens for no reason at all, just a slight tremor or a few twitches. As with everything stress of anykind will agrevate any and all symptoms. Just continue educating yourself as you are doing.

hi,while this used to be the common for all doctors FMSis now recognised as a REAL DISEASE and patients are no longer being fobbed off.There is still research into the factors of fms and this will continue until reasonable causes and treatments are found.
The U.K are very aware of this as a recognised disease I only hope and pray more countries follow in the very near future.
loads of soft hugs.

I find that I twitch when I am in pain also...but not just when I am "having a bad day". Sometimes when I find myself trying to REALLY relax my muscles twitch. Mostly my arms and legs. I do not go to my doctor any more because he is condisending toward me about this. Got to find an understanding doctor which is hard to do without insurance
