People across the country are being kept awake by a
disturbing problem. It feels like lying next to a running motor
or on top of a fridge. During the day, the problem persists.
Sufferers describe inner trembling as a shivering or shaking,
like low-grade electricity running through you or as if you
had swallowed a cell phone on vibrate.

Inner tremors, vibrations, or trembling is a worrying and
irritating problem, particularly when you do not know the
cause.  

Sometimes tremors can be noticed externally but often they
are hidden inside, which makes diagnosis more difficult. Many
people are even more disturbed as they go to the doctor and
nothing is found. Do you feel an inner trembling? What
causes inner vibrations and what can you do about the
phenomena?

What is Inner Trembling or Tremor?




























According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders
and Stroke, tremor is a rhythmic movement of the muscles
that involves the trembling, back-and-forth movement of one
or more parts of the body. Tremor is involuntary meaning
you cannot control it although you can try to suppress it.
Essential tremor is shaking that you notice when you are
moving your hands and arms. Trembling or vibration is also a
shaking feeling but it can be present even when you are not
moving.

It is difficult enough to diagnose an external tremor but even
harder to pin down an internal tremor, where you do not see
any movement on the outside but instead feel it inside.

What Could Cause Inner Trembling?

The National Cancer Institute says that tremor is often
caused by conditions and drugs that affect the nervous
system like
Parkinson’s disease, mercury poisoning,
antidepressants, and liver failure. Internal trembling may be
the result of the same conditions or it could be something
different, for example in some cases, the internal trembling
could be the sign of a neurological disorder. Inner trembling
could be caused by drugs – prescription
drugs or substances
that have
drug-like effects such as caffeine. Or an internal
trembling could be the result of
hypoglycemia.

The difficult part is when the trembling is felt only on the
inside and there is no visible movement in the body. Sufferers
think they are going crazy, and maybe there is something
badly wrong with their mental or physical state. If you suffer
from inner trembling keep a note of when the symptoms
occur, and anything that seems to make the condition better
or worse. Seeing a doctor may help put your mind at rest and
rule out anything serious.

Here we look at the recent scientific literature about some
possible causes of inner trembling, and the remedies that can
help.


1.  
Inner Trembling Can Be Caused by Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism is the clinical name for an overactive thyroid
gland. When you suffer from hyperthyroidism your thyroid is
producing too much thyroid hormone. The principal causes of
an overactive thyroid include
Grave’s disease, Plummer’s
disease, thyroiditis, pituitary problems or, rarely, cancer.
Symptoms include tremor and shakiness and you may
experience this as an inner tremor.

According to medical tests, the herb bugleweed can reduce
the excretion of thyroid hormone by impairing the synthesis
of the hormone. Studies such as 1981 and 1985 research by
Kohrle J, Auf'mkolk M, and Winterhoff H et al state this
finding.

2.
Anxiety Can Cause Inner Trembling

Dealing with anxiety can be difficult because the condition
produces many symptoms that are a challenge to cope with.

One symptom is internal shaking or trembling. Other people
cannot see the trembling but the sufferer notices it, often
when they are resting or trying to sleep.

A symptom of anxiety like this often causes more anxiety, so
it is important if your inner trembling is caused by anxiety to
break the circle.

Many different natural remedies such as valerian
( specifically
"Valeriana officinalis")
are said to help anxiety sufferers. Be
careful though. No study has established that Valerian is safe
for pregnant women or children to use.


A 2000 study from the University of Birmingham in the UK
shows that treatment with a multivitamin and mineral
supplement containing calcium, magnesium and zinc helps to
significantly reduce anxiety and the sensation of stress.

3.
Inner Trembling as a Result of Hypoglycemia

When you go for long periods of time without eating or you
eat a lot of simple carbohydrates like white bread and refined
sugar, your blood sugar rises rapidly then drops rapidly.

The sudden drop causes shakes and trembling, along with
nausea, sweating, irritability, and anxiety. The shaking is
mainly noticeable externally but hypoglycemia may also result
in a kind of internal buzzing or vibration.

If your trembling occurs when you have skipped lunch, or
after a candy binge, then try to remedy the problem by
eating healthy meals at regular intervals. If hypoglycemia
strikes, eat something with sugar like candy or drink a fruit
juice as soon as you can. Follow this with slow-release
carbohydrates like bread, fruit, or cereals. (Read more about
an
ideal breakfast for hypoglycemia.)

4.
Is Your Inner Trembling the Result of Phantom Vibration
Syndrome?

Apparently this is a real phenomenon - phantom ringing,
phantom vibration syndrome or vibranxiety. The sensation is
like feeling your phone vibrate when there is nothing to make
it vibrate.

According to a 2010 study from Baystate Medical Center,
Springfield, 68 percent of the people surveyed felt these
phantom vibrations, with 87 percent feeling them weekly,
and 13 percent every day.

Some experts believe that the vibrations are not exactly
phantom, but actually a real sensation caused by electrical
signals coming through in a transmission rather like
electromagnetic interference. Or it could be our sense of
anticipation, always waiting unconsciously or consciously for
the phone to ring.

Of those people in the study whose internal trembling was
due to these phantom vibrations, 39 percent were able to
stop it happening by taking the phone off vibrate mode,
changing the location of the device, or using a different
device.

5.
Peripheral Neuropathy Results in Inner Tremor

Peripheral neuropathy, or neuropathy, affects the motor
nerves and the sensory nerves. Symptoms of this widespread
condition include a pins and needles or tingling feeling within
the body, a sensation of burning or shaper stabbing pains,
tremor, and a lack of muscular coordination.

The most common cause of peripheral neuropathy is
diabetes
although other conditions can also cause it including a B
vitamin deficiency, certain drugs, cancers, chronic kidney and
liver disease, alcohol overconsumption, and injuries. In one
study (2006) from Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany
high frequency magnetic fields applied to the brain were
effective at reducing the pain and discomfort associated with
peripheral neuropathy.

6.
Caffeine and Inner Tremors

Are you drinking too many cups of coffee? Consuming more
than 500-600 mg of caffeine a day (around three or four
cups of coffee) is linked to nervousness, insomnia, irritability
and restlessness – overconsumption can even cause muscle
tremors, which may be experienced internally.

Caffeine also disrupts your sleep, which can make inner
trembling worse. A 2013 study from Wayne State University
in Detroit shows that drinking coffee in the afternoon or
evening disrupts your sleep hours later when you are trying
to go to bed. Consuming caffeine six hours before bedtime
reduced sleep by at least an hour, according to the
investigation.

7.
Could Inner Trembling Be a Sign of Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous
system that affects how you move. While Parkinson’s disease
often starts off with a slight tremor, it is most often
documented as an external tremor that starts in the hand.

Sufferers experience a shaking of limbs when they are at
rest, and begin to have problems initiating movement.

It is, however, unlikely that a tremor experienced internally
will be the sign of Parkinson’s disease. A recent study (2012)
by Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre, The
Netherlands into Parkinson’s patients found that motor
function is better in the mornings after a good night’s sleep.
Rest is important if you suffer from inner trembling, whether
or not it is caused by Parkinson’s disease.
