Shakes in torso, arms, neck and jaws, starts slightly but increase to a crescendo, then suddenly cease. Reasons ?

In recent months, three times around 3 a.m., I have had the shakes in my torso, arms and neck and jaws, that start slightly but increase to a crescendo, then suddenly cease. My body returns to normal and I have no after effects during the day. My GP told me yesterday that it is a virus but didn t tell me to do anything about it. Can you confirm the diagnosis and tell me if I can do anything about it? My email address is: YYYY@YYYY

Thanks for writing to us.
The sudden shakes in whole body can be related to anxiety, stress, vitamin B 12 deficiency, electrolyte imbalances and dehydration. You need to check all these factors and may need to have some investigations too in case the symptoms are persistent.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
