Does anyone else have tremors yet underactive thyroid levels are fine?

Just spoke to specialist nurse and she said my thyroid levels are fine - had recent baseline blood tests done. However she could not give me any other results as these need to be discussed at doctors meeting. I also had an MRI scan for the pituitary gland, so awaiting results. I have profound primary hypothyroidism and an ACTH level of 13 (adrenal insufficient). I am experiencing terrible tremors in my hands and feet, I had the tremors before I was diagnosed with the thyroid and adrenal problems, but they have returned and seem to be getting worse. I know you can get tremors if you have an overactive thyroid, but as said my levels are fine. Has anyone else had this?

I have no issues with the thyroid, and tremor mainly in head/neck and right arm. At times internally as well.


Hello Sherrywolz

Your point about internally as well has helped - as I feel like I have an internal shaking in my arms and sometimes feet. This is especially if I rest my hands or the shaking is not as extreme.

I had an MRI scan recently - results in November, this was to check the pituitary gland, but if there is anything else (Parkinsons) hopefully they will pick this up then?

Thanks for getting back to me.



This site isn't very good for helping you find other posts, but there are two threads about internal tremor/vibration that others have started.

This is a link to the first of them (I'll go and find the other):


Hi brockie

Thanks for response, I have submitted my position to that group.

Parkinsons has not been mentioned to me at this point and yet some of my symptons fit in.

Do you have a thyroid problem?
