Uncontrollable Shaking Due to Anxiety

Uncontrollable shaking can happen when your arms, hands, legs and even your entire body may feel shaky or like they are trembling.

Some people who experience anxiety more often than others may have a difficult time trying to keep their anxiety and symptoms under control. Biochemical changes that affect the brain, and nervous system, and a wide range of other systems in the body cause these unpleasant symptoms like uncontrollable shaking.

Anxiety changes body chemistry
This biological change produces an out-of-balance body chemistry, which is the reason for the many symptoms anxiety disorder brings. The biological change also affects the persons thoughts and emotions, since both are influenced by the brain, and nervous system. Symptoms may become deeper rooted, or entrenched, and will probably vary from moment to moment.

However, a constant tremor that is not associated with other emotional states could be a sign of a serious medical condition and should be looked at by a health care provider right away.
