I don't know, Gonzo. It might be a good idea to talk to your dr about it.

Shakes can be from more than just drinking, emotional stress is a big one for me. Hunger can be another cause, low blood sugar can cause this, not eating 3 meals a day, caffeine, etc ... in any case ask your doctor, it could be a laundry list of things other than residual from withdraw.

I agree with the other posters that it would be a good idea to consult with a doctor.

Great job on almost 90 days sober.

90 days sober is fantastic sometimes if having a panic attack my hands shake but speaking with a Dr is the next step bud

Do not worry.
but it is best if you go to a doctor.
But the important thing is you are 90 days sober...
And that is a HUGE ACHIEVEMENT!!!

You will feel stronger by day!
Just keep up with the good work,
be strong and keep away from it as much as you can...

If you need to go to doctors do not hesitate or be ashamed
there are so many people that are hiding
Doctors are used to hear all sorts!

It can be done you can live sober!

Good job on the upcoming 90 days.

Everyone's brain/nervous system is different. In some folks, residual tremor can hang around for a long time. I had it for a lot longer than 90 days, but it did eventually go away. Well, 98% of it, anyway.

The danger, for me anyway, was that I'd get frustrated. I'd put together a sober run of several weeks or even several months, and then my despair that the tremors or other lingering symptoms would never go away would give me an excuse to drink again.

I did this in the full knowledge that I was only compounding the problem by giving in, but that's addiction for you.

Hang in there, and your tremors are almost sure to get better on their own as long as you stay sober.

The only exception would be if you have a non-alcohol-related condition which, as other posters have noted, should be diagnosed and treated by a physician. It never hurts to rule out the possibility.

Gonzo , I'm at 6 months and still see my fingers shake sometimes. Especially with any caffeine. Alcohol messes with your GABA receptors. You can google it. Basically your nervous system becomes hyper excitable without your "drug of choice" and it can take quite a while for it to recover to what would be normal. Why so many in recovery have a hair trigger for anxiety symptoms. I keep telling myself to hang in there. but it is discouraging.

I got them towards the end of my drinking but they stopped after I became sober.
I got them again when my Grandmother passed away. I was not drinking then but I was under severe stress.

I think if you stay sober and calm, they should go away.
If you are concerned then you should see your doctor.
