Hands Shaking When Holding Objects?
My fingers often shake (tremors) when holding objects or when I’m still, after I consulted an internal medicine specialist because my ultrasound showed a lump in my thyroid and I was advised to do a lab test but the results were normal on my t3, t4, tsh and ft4, after I was referred to an endocrinologist to do a thyroid scan. But the results are still normal but my hands are shaking more and more, what’s the real reason, thanks
Shaking hands or tremors is a complaint that can be caused by many factors, and one of them is thyroid hormone levels disorders. In addition to thyroid hormone disorders, there are also various things that can cause tremors. One of them is a condition called essential tremor (ET), this type of tremor is not known for sure what causes it, but experts suspect that abnormal brain electrical activity is what ultimately causes the tremor, this ET condition is also associated with genetics that people have. This is where people whose hands tend to tremble usually about 50% of their offspring have similar complaints. In addition to ET, there are also types of tremors caused by other diseases or exposure to substances/conditions, such as cold, narcotics use, stress and anxiety (psychological), low blood sugar levels, multiple sclerosis, and others.
Enny is advised to consult again with the doctor directly, so that a medical assessment can be carried out again. Because it could be that what Enny experienced was caused by things other than thyroid problems. Because laboratory results are only a supporting tool for doctors in establishing a diagnosis of a disease, in addition to lab results, doctors must also pay attention to clinical symptoms, results from physical examinations or other types of supporting examinations so that a definite picture of the person's condition can be obtained.
Hope it is useful
