Brief Answer:
Please provide the following data of yours...

Detailed Answer:
Hi my dear,

Before running into final conclusions, I'd like to have your MRI report, so I can analyze it myself and determine :
- the type of lesions on brain
- where are they located (specific location in the brain and if any compression of brain tissue or other nearby organs is present)?

Next, I need to have more of your medical data:
- is the shaking all the time or you experience shaking attacks?
- can you specify how often do you have the episodes?
- are your legs shaking during nighttime?
- are you not able to speak all the time or only when having the episodes?
- do you suffer of any other disease: heart disease? hypertension? thyroid problems?
- do you have any lab report you have done recently?
- have you consulted a neurologist? can you provide the neurological examination report?

From what you are describing, the shaking legs along with inability to talk right is indicating for possible:
- stroke
- or suffering of brain due to possible compression caused by the lesions noted on MRI. To my opinion, those lesions might be hemorrhagic or tumoral in origin, I need to have the MRI report to conclude my final opinion.

Looking forward to have the requested data in!
