What causes constant shaking of arms & hand?

I have a patient who s arms and hands shake almost uncontollably. He was told he does not have Parkinson s. I picked up high levels of dopamine which would be opposite of what you would expect to find with Parkinson s. Can this be a type of schizophrenic symptom?

Hello,

High levels of dopamine may cause hyperactivity in some patinets.
High dopamine for some people makes it difficult to sit still and may also be associated with shaking of arms and hands.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
