I'm 32, I have 3 kids...didn't start gaining weight until around baby number 2 (only mentioning that in case someone wanted to know if what about to ask has to deal with my weight or not), but since I was a child, the earliest I can remember is like age 10, my hands shake. Sometimes, they'll shake and I am not aware of it, so much that someone else will have to point it out to me. There have been times my hands were shaking so bad that it was like a 'blur'. I know that may seem like an extreme, but I'm just trying to help you all understand me.
Fast forward some years, and this 'hands shaking' business starts up again. It's possible it never went away, but I just kept myself so busy that I either didn't see it or I just ignored...whatever.
Now, here we are at age 32 and I have had moments over the past few years where my husband has noticed this. He'll tell me 'sweetie/babe, look at your hands'. And it's not always both hands...and it's not like I'm nervous, at least, I don't think I am. I know I'm a paranoid person due to some childhood trauma...but it's not an everyday all day thing...
Could it be some sort of nerve thing/issue?
Also, sarcoidosis runs on my dads side of the family. From what I've heard, this 'illness' can attack any system of the body, and that's what it did to my dad. He had it, refused to take medicine (or so I was told) so, while sarcoids isn't cureable, it is treatable and you and stop it where it is. I'm concerned not only for myself, but for my kids as well.
Is there any tests I can demand? I've talked to several doctors, things have happened over the years (in 2004 I had unexplained, itchy bumps from the neck down and even under my skin on my the palms of my hands and soles of my feet, I have no known allergies, I was tested and tested, and TESTED again...and nothing, then as a young kid, I had problems breathing, in 2002 to 2003, I had a pain that traveled from my left shoulder blade to my ribs...I had a hard time breathing, it hurt like crazy...but all these things seemed to just 'go' as time went on)
In 2008, my previous doctor did a 'test' to see if it was a nerve issue...and there was nothing she could see.
So, just want to know if I'm alone in this? Thanks ladies (in advance!)
