    OT Why do My Hands Shake so Bad

    When I was a Young man I remember I could hold a sheet of paper in the palm of my hand and the paper would shake a bit, if I concentrated I could hold it motionless.

    Now at 46 years old I am noticing that I am shakier then I use to be. Like when I am holding an estimate or invoice and going over it with someone who is reading off it at the same time.

    It hasn't affected me in my work, I am a carpenter, but it is embarrassing.

    Is it the 2 cases of PBR a week or am I just getting old.

    Maybe I should switch back to Hamms.

    Thoughts?

    Stop reading while masturbating. Don't hold paper of any kind, only tissue.

    And definitely stop jerking off in front of clients.

    Wow, are you retarded? Actually the answer is yes.

    How old are you, are you not smart enough to quit?

    I'm no doctor, but there is a condition called "essential tremor" that is relatively common in people over 40. It's no big deal, but if it's bothering you, you can see a doctor. If that's what you have, your doctor can prescribe a beta-blocker. If you don't want to see a doctor, try reducing your caffeine intake and see if that helps.

    But it can't hurt to see a doctor. If nothing else, if the shaking is anxiety related in any way, it can be comforting to hear from a doctor that it is nothing to worry about.

    Dude,,,,

    I am not the sharpest tool in the shed, but why go there.

    I could say something about taking the fork out, but I won't.

    I realize the stupidity of smoking, and I quit for a 1 1/2 years once about 5 years ago, it just sort of sucked me back in.

    Some of you apparently don't understand addiction

    Like I said, I have NO idea how hard it is. But there are things to help prevent such an addiction. I guess u can't teach an old dog new tricks?

    Sex and beer.

    Point taken SBIII, you are helping me get motivated. Quiting smoking is tougher then quiting alcohol or heroin, took me 6 months to get over the cravings when I quit.

    I just got back from Mexico and when the cheap smokes I bought there run out I think I will go cold turkey. Which will be in about 2 more weeks cause I bought 10 cartons.

    Jesus Christ.

    Anyway good luck to you man. And I hope the shaking goes away.

    Addiction is an excuse for those without the ability to moderate.

    True that.

    That is why it is important to understand or limitations.

    Thats why I never bought coke back in the day, because I knew it would take me over.

    Smoking sucks, but does it make you shake?

    You should ask a doctor that. As for addiction, I smoked two cigars but never got addicted to smoking. In fact, it made me hate it even more..

    It is something an acupuncturist would be able to remedy. Tremors stem from the liver energy rising, usually an emotional etiology, sometimes not though.

    I heard when you are over 40 and go to the doctor they want to put fingers in your bung.

    Never been to a doctor since HS, except for emergency room stuff like stitches and setting bones. I do see a dentist 2 times a year.

    I think this doctor idea may be spot on though, I got some moles and and a family history of skin cancer.
