International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

Morning tremors

    Hi all -

    Haven't posted here in a while because I have been in a state of partial remission for the past year or so with the methylation protocol plus a few other interventions. However, recently I have been having very difficult wakeups again combined with new symptoms. I have had tremors for as long as I can remember, generally more pronounced on my right side (my LLMD puts them to my lyme diagnosis, I put them to some sort of sugar metabolism issues) than my left.

    However, in conjunction with the hard wakeups, I have recently been waking up with shakiness and weakness bad enough that I can not do fine motor tasks. Writing with a pen or pencil for example that lasts for 1-4 hours after waking up. I can't tell if it is noticeably fixed by eating or drinking, it seems to resolve itself on its own as I get into my day.

    It is not (always) combined with OI/POTS type symptoms, but sometimes it is (historically my POTS has been worse in the morning)

    Just wondered if anyone else experiences the morning shakes and if so, what sleuthing you have done around it.

    How are your electrolyte levels? Calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium. Many of us need to supplement them.

    shakiness and weakness themselves may be a POTS symptom. .

    I shake heaps and get terribly weak when my POTS is playing up.
