Hand tremors and shakes, fatigue, weakness, headache, back pain. Reason?

Hello, I am a 20 year old female. I have been having a tremor in my hand when i try to make a fist and my thumb also shakes. I also have alot of fatigue and weakness in both my arms and legs. Other symptoms include a tremor in my jaw, which looks like im constantly shivering .Also, when I get out of a hot shower, my pain and tremors worsen and my legs shake after I shower. Alongside, I have really bad headaches that get so bad that my jaw and teeth will hurt. Often the headaches are so bad that my eye squints from the pain. Another thing is that I have really bad back pain which stops me from sitting without support and gets worse at night

Hi there , some of your symptomatology suggestive of thyrotoxicosis. Commonly occurs due Increased hormones( thyroid hormones) production from thyroid gland( also called as Hyperthyroidism) . This disease is quite common among young females.
Weight loss, loss of sleep , palpitations , neck swelling , menstrual disturbances etc are the other problems patient faces due to this disease.
I suggest you to visit a Physician for clinical examination and doctor will order Thyroid profile test to confirm the diagnosis.
