Brief Answer:
Causes to uncontrollable body shaking...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Having general full body uncontrollable shaking might be related to:
- seizures
- hypoglycemia
- thyroid problems
- fever convulsions

To my opinion, you should get further evaluated by your doctor and neurologist and to run further tests :
- measuring blood sugar levels to exclude diabetes
- thyroid function test to exclude thyroid problems
- EEG to exclude seizures (neurological problems)

The earlier you get medical examinations, the earlier you will get treatment, the better the progress would be.

Hope it was of help! Let me know if I can assist you further!
