hands lock and shaking...

Bit of a mad one here, ive noticed over the the last year that if im driving, holding my hand the same position for some time, my hand locks in that position. It used to be one hand now two. It doesnt happen alot but once or twice a month.

Additionally something different has started to happen. If im using the muscles in my hand i can see my hand shaking, like tremours... i can feel it more than see it, but u can see it, it doesnt happen when my hand is floppy only when i engage to use it. Again, this was one had but ive noticed it begin to happen in the other.

I wonder if this could be linked with using the laptop alot, is typing etc?

Strange hey... like me! hahah

anyone get this?

umm my dad used to have this kinda problem with driving...dont mean to sound the worse...but he has been diagnosed with arthritis...from beign a mechanic he has used his body too much...worth going to your GP for...because your hands shouldnt just lock...some people have it as a problem but nothing serious, but that normally starts when your young and keeps happening so no idea why you have just started having this problem

Mr itis. innit?

Best go to the docs, it sounds like RSI but my friends MS started like this :-(

i actually googled that then! loll

I reckon its RSI, cos i do type an awful lot!

Do some reading for yourself and decide if you really want a potential diagnosis of something that could be ongoing if you have not got all necessary insurance policies in place. Think about it.

sounds like arthritus. most people get symptoms from mid 30's onwards but very mild

heavy laptop usage doesnt help matters

get a full size keyboard

Too late, most policies would exclude a pre existing condition anyway, even taking a policy now then getting diagnosed would show up symptoms that have been noticeable.



Best to get checked out, there is probably loads of stuff it could be, quicker you get diagnosed, then the quicker you can get treatment. Good luck

Don't get me wrong I am sorry that your having problems and hope its nothing serious.

It does amaze me when people ask medical questions on an internet forum when the answers are far from medical diagnosis.

Its like reading a medical dictionary, you become a hypochondriact you convince yourself you have every third illness or disease on every page.

Take this thread for example from what people have said your now worrying that it could be anything from RSI to MS with some arthritic problem in between.

Go and see your doctor... its what they are there for, you will get an educated diagnosis that will hopefully put your mind at ease.

Yes but its only 'existing' if it has been recorded. They may ask about family history etc and you must answer as truthfully as possible. At the moment a couple of instances of hands locking could be absolutely anything. Mineral deficiency, stress etc etc etc. Just saying that 33 is no age to get diagnosed with something that could be long lasting and could have impacts on many areas of life unless it is something you are set to be able to deal with.

We all know that hotukdeals isnt for diagnosing stuff, pcnutta clearly hoping for some reasssurance.
I think WoolyMs advice is pretty good. These symptoms could be due to so many things only a doctor can really say whats causing them.
Try cutting down on time spent using a keyboard to see if the symptoms ease?
