She said she was in a lesson this morning and she was talking and suddenly everything sped up? Since then her hands have been shaking, enough to make writing difficult. She feels fine, has been out on her bike and eaten normally. What could it be?

She's 13.

How old is she?

When I started my periods age 9 (3 months shy of 10) I had fainting spells and got the shakes occasionally.

Cross post about her age!

Frownette · 06/06/2019 21:19

I used to tremble with nerves at that age, only at school.

Does she do it elsewhere?

Fribbke · 06/06/2019 21:20

It started at about 11am and has gone on all day.

Get bloods done. Shaky hands, everything speeding up were exact first signs of hyperthyroidism for me. Don't worry though, may not be that & if it is, in my case easily managed with medication.

Has she eaten today?

Fribbke · 06/06/2019 21:24

All day! Did you call your GP?

QuestionableMouse · 06/06/2019 21:26

Honestly we can't answer this. I'd give 111 a ring and see if you can get an OOH GP appointment.

Fribbke · 06/06/2019 21:30

No, she was with a friend until 6, so she only told me a couple of hours ago. She's absolutely healthy and cheerful but if its still going on in the morning i will ring gp.

Fribbke · 06/06/2019 21:34

What are you asking then?

Fribbke · 06/06/2019 21:36

I wondered if anyone had seen anything similar.

OP posts:
TokyoSushi · 06/06/2019 21:40

I also think you should seek advice about this one OP

Fribbke · 06/06/2019 21:41

Yes i definitely will. She's fast asleep so I'm not going to do anything until tomorrow.

How is she this morning?

Fibbke · 07/06/2019 12:13

I have rung my gps surgery who said I should monitor her over the weekend. They are still trembling slightly.

Although she's a child who seems quite robust she's had a lot of small but stressful things happen over the last couple of months so I wouldn't be surprised if it was anxiety. The doctor did mention a benign tremor but there was nothing they could do about it if it was!

Mylittlepony374 · 07/06/2019 12:52

I was in my 20s. I would definitely push for bloods to rule it out. Have a google and see if other symptoms seem familiar.

Fibbke · 07/06/2019 12:53

I have, she's very thin and eats a lot!

Mylittlepony374 · 07/06/2019 13:09

It often goes undiagnosed for a while... I had lost a lot of weight despite constant eating also but was delighted with that, didn't see it as a problem! It wasn't until shaky hands that I got tested.

Fibbke · 10/06/2019 10:45

Thank you all. Had an appointment booked yesterday but she woke up on Saturday and the shaking has stopped. I suspect it was anxiety related. She's a bit unhappy at school (she's moving to a new school next year).

Namechanger4dis · 10/06/2019 20:17

I had something similar as a teen. Consultant neurologist is was under for another condition seemed wholly uninterested. Said teens can get funny spells.
Move had it since as an adult and it’s quite terrifying x
