Left arm shaking intensly after carrying grocery bag?!
« on: August 26, 2014, 08:35:50 AM »
I walked home from the store, something like 3-400m, carrying a bag that could weigh somewhere around 15kg. I carried it with my left hand, and when I got home and started unpacking my arm started to shake violently (could not for the life of me keep it still). This has never happened to me before, and I have a physically demanding work so this kind of weights are nothing new to me. Either way, Im scared to death a bout this now, and even though it has settled down a bit the whole arm is still shaky and aching.

Any ideas what this could indicate?

This happens to me when I'm trying to lift one pot I have when it's filled with water or sauce. I don't have trouble actually performing the task, I just shake a bit when doing it.

This always happens to me when carrying shopping even just a small bag. Obviously your arm isn't used to that type of weight so it jerks. I'm not sure if it's a muscle or a nerve but don't worry a bout it. It goes away.

Hi Rasalhauge,
Yep similar things have happened to me before. I remember one time in particular I was carrying my art portfolio around a uni for an interview, and couldn't even lift my arms above my head for the rest of the day.
I think it means nothing, you're most likely stressed out & haven't had enough rest, so the physical excursion is making you tired more easily than it would.
Feel better soon

It's not from anxiety, it comes from muscular/nerve strain. Completely normal if it goes away after a while.

Dx: GAD, DESNOS, Fibro and other physical issues. Nothing serious, but of course my anxious mind will often find something very serious as with other things in my life. Anxiety is a fraud. Anxiety is not YOU or ME, it is an illness.

Anxiety is still the cause of him fixating on it.
