Whole Body Tremor on Awakening
Some mornings I awaken to whole body tremor, similar to severe shivering, along with clattering teeth. It doesn`t last long, but wonder if this is unusual.
It is not uncommon for people with Parkinson's disease to have morning symptoms of tremor, and especially as they are awaiting the first dose of medications to start working and also until they are more active.
