Menopause

Can menopause cause tremor symptoms

04/07/2009

Question:

Ive been having tremor symptoms for almost a year now. I have gone through peri-menopause and several months ago my dr. confirmed i have entered menopause. Over the last year i have started with body tremors (started when trying to sleep) and periodically mild tremor and shakiness inside. Sometimes i wake up in the middle of the night with tremors and then i start to have a hot flash (i have hot flashes without the tremor mostly). could menopause be the cause of the tremors? THANK YOU!

Answer:

Lots of changes occur at the same time as menopause, but are not directly related to the hormone changes traditionally attributed to menopause. I don't think your tremors are related to the female hormone changes occurring now for you.
