Trembling Shaking Tremors Anxiety Symptoms

Trembling, shaking, tremors anxiety feelings symptoms description:

It feels like a part, many parts, or your entire body is trembling and shaking.

This trembling and shaking feeling can occur rarely, frequently, or persistently.

This trembling and shaking feeling can occur when anxious or stressed, or occur for no apparent reason and out-of-the-blue.

It’s common for these trembling shaking feelings to be more noticeable when trying to rest, relax, go to sleep, when waking up from sleep, or when undistracted. 

It’s also common for these trembling shaking feelings to occur intermittently and for no apparent reason. For example, you may be resting when all of a sudden, and for no apparent reason, a part of your body, parts of your body, or your entire body begins to tremble and shake. Then for no apparent reason, moments later, these trembling shaking feelings disappear, only to return again later, even though you haven’t changed position or done anything to alleviate or aggravate these shaking and trembling feelings.

These trembling shaking anxiety feelings may precede, accompany, or follow an escalation of other anxiety sensations and symptoms, or occur by itself.

These trembling shaking anxiety feelings can precede, accompany, or follow an episode of nervousness, anxiety, fear, and elevated stress, or occur ‘out of the blue’ and for no apparent reason.

These trembling shaking anxiety feelings can range in intensity from mild, to moderate, to severe. They can also come in waves, where you are trembling and shaking strong one moment and not the next.

These trembling shaking anxiety feelings can change from day to day, and/or from moment to moment.

All of the above variations and combinations are common.

What causes anxiety trembling and shaking feelings?

Being anxious stresses the body. When the body becomes stressed it can exhibit symptoms of stress, including a trembling and shaking feeling. The more stressed the body becomes, the more pronounced symptoms of stress can become.

How to get rid of anxiety trembling and shaking feelings?

Since anxiety trembling and shaking feelings are caused by being anxious and an overly stressed body, you can eliminate these trembling feelings by stopping your worry and reducing your body's stress. As your body calms down from being overly stressed, it stops presenting symptoms of stress, including having a trembling shaking feeling.
