Everytime I wake up my body starts shaking on and off for the first 10-15 minutes. And if I happen to yawn then I shake really badly. Is this a normal thing? This morning I spilled my coffee shaking and I am pissed.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
Doesn't sound normal. You should definitely look into it. I yawn and stretch out my muscles in the morning and there's a bit of vibration in my muscles from that, but it lasts only as long as the stretch does. Nothing anywhere near the level of interfering with coffee drinking.
@azimuttyo No, it's not.
Are these involutary muscle spasms or is this shaking like you have a cold fever?
Do you have any difficulty speaking (aphasia) or trouble pronounciating (dysathria)?
Did you recently take a blow to your head or fall on your head?
Does this happen when coughing or forcing yourself on the toilet?
Did you recently stay up very late (like nightshifts)?
Do you have a history of epilepsy, for example as a kid?
Do you lose a bit of urine when you shake like that?
Since it's after yawning, I think you might have a severe vagal (nervus vagus) overreaction to yawning.
I don't think it's anything serious and there is no need to be scared by conditions such as Parkinson. But I suggest you see a docter since an unchecked condition like this can lead to problems.
On a side note, could we get someone to photoshop a "The Giant Bomb Xtreme Medical Advice Line" picture? I'd be very grateful.
With as many "Hey guys is this horrible injury bad?" topics we get now it would be used pretty often.
Broke both your clavicles?
Does your breath smell like freshly baked bread?
Did you drink uncertified breastmilk and you wonder if you can get HIV because of it?

Sounds like bad circulation. Do you sleep in a lot of clothes perhaps?
I was going to say low blood sugar.
Low blood sugar does not seem very plausible. People with really low blood sugar start shaking uncontrollably and sweating (sympatic signs) for long stretches of time. If there was something wrong with his blood sugar, he'd be shaking in his sleep as well and would continue to shake untill he had a meal. Also, there is a overt reaction to yawning. Your way of thinking is not bad though.
Don't scare TC with Parkinson, low blood sugar or overreact that he should search medical attention ASAP. It's like one of those Yahoo questions. Someone would ask a question about a poorly healing wound on the tip of his finger and get diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the end.
I should mention that I'm currently in my third year of med school, but that doesn't mean you should take my advice as truth. Consult the internet always at your own discretion.
