Hi Ladies

Please help. Anyone experienced this internal tremor vibration?

Almost like when your cold. Really hard to explain. Ive had it on and off in peri but my health anxiety tells me its something serious. Im on 15mg of mirtazapine an AD but I want to come off it cause I kerp thinking mayb its a side effect. But just thinking about withdrawal of this med is making me anxious as well. When im busy I dont notice Iit. I notice Iit more when Iim sitsitting still. X

    Hi Michelle, I think this is another symptom of menopause, I get it a lot, inner shaking like a vibrating sensation

    I don't think it sounds like a side effect of your medication, just be careful about coming off the AD

    Take care

    Hi Michelle,

    I've had the internal tremors. Last year they were really bad and I would sometimes shake all over too. I was tested for diabetes but it wasn't that. My worst internal tremor feelings were in my stomach area, such a weird feeling. They would come and go. They made me feel extremely anxious and I would get 'surges' of adrenalin feelings with them so it was difficult to know if the anxiety was bringing them on or was a result of them. I have definitely read that these internal tremors can be part of the peri. They are really anxiety inducing though so practice breathing and relaxation techniques and keep telling yourself they are harmless. Hope you feel better soon.

      So I haven't given my update since posing my question. I went to a new gyn; one that specializes in menopause. She ran my FSH and it was at a 10. I am 48 and she said that a young adults FSH level is usually send a 2. A women that no longer has periods will test in the 20's. Since I'm still pretty consistent with my cycles but they've changed she believes in about 2 years off from my cycles coming to an end. She said that my progesterone levels are fluctuating by I still have plenty of estrogen. I asked her if the varying progesterone levels could be causing my cold and tingling feet and these internal tremors. She didn't think so but also said everyone is different. So I started taking progesterone and no lie.... The trembling as all but pretty much stopped! 6 weeks so far!

      After 10 months of consistent symptoms I truly feel "cured"! The GYN and my GP and my endocrinologist all felt that it wouldn't take away my anxiety. I would wake up in the morning and I would feel like my teeth were chattering. I felt like if I held hand out it should be shaking but it wasn't. The doctors all said it was anxiety and I probably needed some anti anxiety medicine. But within one week of taking 200mg of progesterone nightly, all of that went away! I don't care if it's a placebo effect or not, I'm just grateful that things have improved tremendously.

      Glad you found the right treatment that helped your peri symptoms. what form of progesterone are you using? topical or oral tabs? I have terrible anxiety which brings on heart palpitations, headaches, dizziness. I just can't wait for all this to pass. My GP is pushing ADs but I refuse to take it. I know my anxiety came from hormones fluctuating so why can't they understand? My periods were very irregular for a while, but last 4 months they have been regular, I still suffer though with all kinds of peri symptoms.

      Hi Sindy

      All of us here are SO glad that your symptoms went away 😃 And we hope that the internal vibrations never ever came back too?!

      A few ladies wrote to you to ask what type/brand name of Progesterone you were taking - but there was no response. Could you please tell us? We're really desperate.

      I hope you see this message.

      Kind regards

      Louise ❤

    Hi Michelle, I got that when I first started per I, it scared the crap out of me. As the other ladies said it's another nagging nuisance of the syndrome. I remain stunned and amazed at the power of estrogen and all of the issues resulting from it'd decrease. I spoke with my mom and she said all she ever got was heat flashes that's it. No breast pain, no joint swelling no chest swelling, no panic attacks nada. I
