Internal tremors especially in my head

Posted , 41 users are following.

I'm a 28 year old female that lives a realitivly stress free life that is healthy and active. A month ago I randomly started feeling a INTERNAL  shaking tremoring sensation in my upper body this lasted for a week and went away. In this time I had a MRI of the head and an ECG that both came back as normal.

Last week the tremors came back and for the last 3 days they have been solely confined to my head. I only notice it at times of rest if I'm watching TV or in bed and when I'm active I do not notice it. My doctors do not have an explanation for this and because my tests have come back ok they think I'm imagining it because there's nothing visual for them to see. Also for around a year I've had strange feelings of pins and needles that go through my arms and legs and stay for days. I'm not sure if this is related. Can anybody offer any explanations because I really do not know what this is and I'm extremely worried.

    I am not a doctor but after 40 years of dealing with stress and anxiety, you could have a little anxiety.  You say your stress free, but are you fearful?  Only you will be aware of this and all others will be oblivious to your condition.  Do you exercise?  Walk 30 to 60 minutes everyday and see if this helps.  Now is not the time to worry.  It will only worsen.   Fear can cause these conditions and the doctors and all their exams will find nothing.  Eventually they will recommend medicine and try to mask the symptoms without determining the cause.  Medicine is sometimes worse than the bite.  Laugh more and be happy and it will hopefully disappear.

    Thank you for getting back to me I don't feel fearful at all and I'm really active I dance 4 times a week and also gym 3/4 times a week. I'm hoping it is just stress that I don't know I'm feeling

      Hopefully it is just stress, but it could be a form of anxiety.  You need to stay active and keep exercising.  Your only 28, it could be just chemical changes.  If  you worry about this, you can make it worse.  Laugh it off, be happy and hopefully it will just go away.  I have dealt with stress and anxiety for the last 40 years. I will not share symptoms with you, but freedom comes from a positive attitude,love and laughter.

    When you mention;”in your head”, do you mean you are having involuntary movements of your head/neck area?

      Yes it involuntary movement. For a few weeks now I’ve also had a pressure sensation in my face kind of like a pulling around the nose and central forehead area. I’ve been given propanol as my tremors became visable and this has helped a lot as I’m sleeping now but it’s stull not treating the cause of the symptoms. Tomorrow I’m going to see a Lymes disease specialist as many of my symptoms seem to relate to this. I’ll let you know how I get on.

      Saysha   I would love to hear what your doctor said. i have the same thing.  I fell down steps and now have vibrations in my head. Pressure so bad and the pulling around the nose and forehead. Also when i open my mouth wide it pulls on my face.  I don't sleep. i don't know how i'm alive. Pain all over my back, head and neck.is so bad.   I can't even go into how much pain and the vibrations feel.  I'm on ambien and it doesn't help at all. So much stress now.  Did you have any teeth work done? i had a bridge put it and it feels tight, my sinuses feel cloggedI was wondering if the teeth had anything to do with it. I also have extreamly sensitive ears now, if anyone talks loud the vibrations start.  I'm at a loss. I feel like i lost my life now.

    Hi, i also have the same but worst, i am always feeling this vibration in my brain and body but is not noticed outside and my head feels like heavy. Had an MRI and they found like white matter flair hypersensitivities but said that this don't usually goes with the internal shakiness. It is very scary, frustrating because i don't know what else to do, it does not let me sleep or enjoy life.  If you find anything that could help me please e mail me.  Thanks

      Hi, i feel the similar symptoms. for the last 4 years i have had constant internal tremors in head and body. they are to slight to notice but if i put a piece o paper on my head they can be seen. i had an mri and it was apparently ok. the neurologist told me he thinks 100% that it is stress and anxiety even though i was in bit of denial. it feels that it is progressing, sometimes causing so much head fog. it feels as though something is going on in my head snd lately experienced pretty bad headaches, possibly from the venlafaxine 75 ml lately. i feel wont be able to retain the information if i study for more courses due to the cloudiness and not being able to concentrate as though im in a dream,. the venlafaxine helped a bit initially but i feel my internal tremors and brain fog are still getting worse. it is so diorientating, any insight for similar situation?

    The doctors always said they don't have explanation when they can't know what someting is or say that it is depression, anxiety etc.

    Hi, I have had the same symptoms as you describe for the last month: tremors confined to my head/face when resting/sleeping, and on again off again tingling in my arms and legs. I've also had leg weakness, finger cramps, and a lot of difficulty sleeping. I have seen my doctor and am waiting to see a neurologist but the wait times are very long here (I live in Canada). It was suggested to me that this could be stress-related, but seems unlikely to me. While I wait, I came across your post and I am just wondering if you ever received a diagnosis?
