Normal to have involuntary shaking? Have headache

Hi, I can t stop shaking and am wondering if this is normal? it s not little shaking like shivers , it s more, I just want to run around, but I can t, my leg keeps shaking, i need my hands to be doing something right now. when I stop to think about what im going to say, and stop typing, my hand starts shaking. almost uncontrollably. I can stop, but when I do, I start to get a slight headache (just because It s hard to concentrate) and I need to think about stopping. I felt the same way about 6 months ago, but I also thought about suicide , I went to the hospital and they determined that I don t have depression and that this was just a side effect to being upset at the time. I don t smoke , I don t do drugs, so, its not withdrawals from any physical substance, maybe a person i miss. but other than that, should I worry at all? have you ever seen breaking bad? well, there are parts when walter throws burning matches into the pool. right now that sounds like a good idea. I ve tried drinking fluids, fresh air, but It s been about 30minutes. it s not that bad I m just wondering if it might be anxiety or something.

Thank you for posting your query.

The commonest cause of involuntary shaking is anxiety. So, this could be the case in you too.

Other common cause is essential tremors, where there generally is a family history.

A deficiency of vitamin B12 and excess of thyroid hormone could be other causes. These can be tested in blood test.
