why do i shake when i'm nervous

Question Posted Friday August 24 2007, 3:59 pm

I shake a lot when I get nervous or when I'm arrguing with someone. Do you think there's something wrong? Also, there is a past of anxiety in my family, is that what it could be? It happens almost each and every time I argue or get really upset and it doesn't go away until everything is resolved. Thanks in advance.

I shake all the time. When I'm nervous, when I'm excited, and almost everywhere in between.

Like the person below me said, it's the bodies' normal reation. It's fine, and totally normal.

If you think you have an anxiety problem, talk to a family memeber that's had it and see if your symptoms are similar. Or jsut go to your doctor.

But don't worry, you'll be fine =]

Shaking when you are nervous is a normal reaction to anxiety. The main concern is the actual nervousness. How often you are nervous, how intense it is, and how much it affects your daily life are factors that psychologists use to determine if you have an anxiety disorder. Since you say that anxiety disorders run in your family, it is possible.

How often do you get nervous? Do you often have excessive worry about many different things that may not be related to each other? Has this been happening for 6 months or more? If so, you could have Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This is a fairly common disorder that usually surfaces during adolescence. You can go here for more information on this:

Do you get nervous a lot in social situations? Do you find it hard to talk to others, make friends, or more severely, leave the house? If so, you could have Social Anxiety Disoder, aka Social Phobia. Social Phobia is the extreme fear of being scrutinized by others. People with this disorder will try to avoid social situations, or endure them with symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, shaking, and sweating. For more information on Social Phobia, go here:

Another possible disorder is a panic disorder. This is when you have panic attacks, often for no reason at all. Some people even have them while they are asleep! Panic attacks can include thoughts that you are having a heart attack, are about to die, or going crazy. It also can include rapid heart beat, shaking, sweating, and dread. People who have panic attacks try to avoid the things that trigger them. To be diagnosed with a panic disorder, you must have had at least 4 panic attacks and fear having more. For more information, go to:

You can also go to the following websites for information on anxiety disorders in general and to find information on some anxiety disorders that I didn't mention:
