Question: Trembling


 kandy - Mon May 07, 2007 11:01 am

Hi,
I'm a 25 year old female. For the past few months, i've noticed that from my elbows to my fingers, i feel a slight trembling. I noticed that especially when i'm doing slow movements or for example when my arm is in the air and i try to bring my index finger slowly beside my middle finger. My arms feel very weak, and i feel like i need to have them rested alot. It feel like i've constantly been lifting alot of weights. The feeling is a little the same with my legs, but it's so little that i'm disregarding it. I am not under any medication. I feel tired alot, and unenergetic.

What could be wrong with me? Could it be due to the fact that almost a year ago, i lifted a very very heavy mirror with my husband? I remember that right after lifting it, my arms felt so heavy, almost dead. I couldn't lift the lightest thing.

Any input is appreciated, Thanks

could this be arthritis, or a beginning of parkinson's?

I don't know if this is also related but I've also been getting tiny blood marks on my body...They usually come one at a time and go.. I really need someone's advice about all this. Things as simple as touching the corner of my eye are almost tiring to my arm (forearm and fingers)..
