What if as you are waking up feeling the desire to move do the the RLS, and as you start to move, you feel the tremor. When I started to get a tremor I first noticed it as I was waking up and using my left arm to adjust the covers. This was long before I noticed it in regular awake hours. This may not fit you, but I wanted to give you another possibility other than Parkinson's.

What do your doctors say about you possibly having Parkinson's?

(The more I look at this stuff the more it seems I might have Parkinson's. Too many symptoms in that list, and some of them are common to many other processes other than Parkinson's.)
It really is a tough one! I read about essential tremor, it can include internal tremor also, but the part that doesn't fit for me is my tremor is always at rest and started in leg. Essential seems to only occur with movement and starts in hands or arms. Believe me, I wish it was Essential tremor, Parkinsons scares me to death! The neuro I went to couldn't dx Parkinsons because no symptoms were visable, he said internal tremor can be a part of Parkinsons, but has to be seen (advanced) for dx. It is pretty hard searching for answers, getting none, feeling the symptoms and getting more and more anxious. I am sorry if I put the Parkinsons bug in your ear........didn't mean to do that!
If you have had tremor for a while now (how long has it been?), you would probably be showing more symptoms by now if it were PD.

I get that you are afraid of what this could turn into, and I am right with you. Certain of my symptoms do not fit my main diagnosis, but what I have does not really suggest anything to the doctors either. That is why they ran all the tests that while they did not turn up a new diagnosis- at least they ruled out certain others. SO, I guess all we can do is wait- and hope those other things do not show up.

What I see out there on internal tremor- All it means is that your tremor is not visible to others yet. It still could be other things than Parkinson's.

There are a lot of kinds of tremor. Do not think that just because yours does not fit with essential tremor that it means Parkinson's. I have seen a "postural tremor" video on youtube. The person is laying down, and tremor is impacting all limbs. They are technically at rest. But it is a postural tremor because if they sit up and move, it goes away.

Just me again. I wanted to add that whatever you have, a magnesium supplement still may help with the symptoms. Magnesium is a necessary part of many body processes involving nerve and muscle function. And it is often not available in high enough amounts in food products today. I take a daily chelated magnesium supplement, and it has helped me.

Good Luck, and better health to you!

I had what felt like an internal tremor while at rest and it was really only on one side of my body which was left side (shoulder, head, neck area). And I felt it more at rest than anything else. Turned out to be a nerve that was impinged and spasming. It also sat really close to a blood vessel and the pressure on both is what was causing the sensation for me.

I hope you find some answers.
How did you fix it?

Default tremors

I have Acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans, a very late stage symptom of lyme that is more commonly known in Europe.

It is skin and joint related mostly but these tremors are a major part of it.
I can not get much in the way of treatment, as lyme is 'not allowed'. I do get releif from epsom salt baths, at least for a few hours. Twitching, involuntary large muscle movements, internal or invisible tremors and actual visible tremors and my skin feels like I have been sunburned and stuck in a hot shower all the time now..
FYI.....under anestesia for dental work...i was told i twitched like a fish on a dock, and had to be restrained to keep me in the chair.

I have not yet figured out how to supplement magnesium as I have severe nickel allergies now and all the foods high in magnesium are also high in nickel.....will this never end....ahhhhh!

Question My symptoms sound like yours - no doc is telling me what I have

I pray it is not Parkinsons.......it is a tough disease, a lot more to it than shaking.
HI. I read your symptoms and they sound like mine. I've been to 3 neurologists who tell me I do not have Parkinson's. My walking is getting worse, balance is very off, "electricity feeling" throughout my body when resting, high pitched sound in my ears as if I am hearing the electricity, and moving tremor when I use my muscles. Tested negative for Lymes. I went from being totally fine 6 monts ago, to being a person who cannot make it through a mall. I need to find what I have. Does anyone out there have any ideas? I was a healthy active productive 52 year old mother, wife, daughter just a few months ago. I'm scared. Without a diagnosis, and getting worse by the day, it's scary. PS. My dad has Parkinson's. Could this be early PD? It is just a waiting game? Has anyone had a DAT scan and does it help. My docs do not recommend it, as they do not think I have PD.

Default Abnormal Sensations and Internal Tremors

I was so happy to find this website and read about others who have been experiencing almost the same symptoms as me. But mine differs a bit.

I started noticing the numbness and tingling sensation in January of this year. At the time, my BP was elevated and so I attributed it to that. I went off caffeine, gluten, began eating a DASH diet, lost 10 lbs., and quit my very stressful job and increased my daily exercise. By June, BP was normal again without and has remained that way.

But numbness and tingling (constant) in hands and feet remained. Gradually, I started noticing that when I was at rest, it felt like I was trembling from the inside. It was very slight at first, but has now gradually increased until now I am finding it difficult to sleep. I will feel sleepy but the minute I am still enough to go to sleep, I feel the tremors. Even my tongue feels tingly sometimes, my face will feel numb and tingling and insides feel quivery, ALL THE TIME. The way it differs from others is that it not restricted to one side.

I have an appt. with neuro for the first time in early November. I have eaten extremely well for almost 20 years (organic, lots of leafy greens, chicken and fish, no red meat, lots of veggies, almost no processed foods), I do yoga, lift weights and exercise at least 6 days a week.

My grandmother had Parkinsons Disease. In the spring, I had a complete blood profile and all the numbers were within range and doctor said everything looked good. I had an eye exam to determine if my blood sugar levels had been elevated over a longer period of time since my mother had Type 1 diabetes and died from complications. I am 57 years old, take no meds, have never been on any meds and am very healthy otherwise.

I am curious about the alternative methods mentioned on here including the OTC Cough medicine. At this point, I would love to have something that would help me sleep!

Also, I want to be as prepared as possible when I go to the doc. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated. My research seems to keep pointing back to PD, MS, ES, Lymes etc. I have spent a great deal of time outdoors and spend much of the past seven years in the rainforest of Belize.

to ShakyNNumb

Ask your neurologist to refer you to a neurologist that specialize in neuropathy. Ask for the fallowing tests. EMG, NCS, and a special study for small fiber neuropathy, " sweat test". I had mine in connection with Autonomic Reflex study. Have a complete work up for neuropathy. and small fiber neuropathy.
A special neurologist in a teaching hospital perhaps. I saw 5 or 6 different neurologists until I finally found one that could help me.
I have exacyly the same symptoms as you. No one can see it or feel it.
And sometimes while sitting on a chair, it feels like the chair is shaking.But I think it is my sensory nerves.
I have been diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy, and also some large, or long, Sensory Motor Polyneuropathy.
I am also in 2 weeks going to have a Spinal Tap
