Hi,

I have following problem : My hands + fingers shivers...immediately after climbing but sometimes also during the days when I do NOT climb. Sometimes for an hour, sometimes ten minutes. I am quite sure that it is from climbing. Does anybody have the same problem? How do you solve it? What can be another reason except of climbing? thanks for replys..adam

How long have you been climbing? It might go away as you climb more. It could also be lack of some vitamin or something. Just a couple of ideas.

Lay offa the crack. :wink:

In all seriousness, I have one of the worst disorders for climbing, Raynaud's Syndrome. It's genetic, and causes me to lose circulation in my hands and feet when it gets even remotely cold. It sucks ass. I counter with handwarmers, and gloves if possible. I also lose feeling, which is even worse, because I then can't control how my hands work, when jamming or trying to use a face hold. No bueno.

Even with that, I still don't get that kind of issues. It might be something to do with your nervous system, or possibly minor muscle tremors. I get latent spazms in my upper back and shoulders from an old neck injury. Nothing major, but annoying at times.

I am fairly sure that a rock climbing web-site is not the best place to seek medical advice. If you are shaking for a hour after climbing you might want to visit a doctor.

I'd second that!

You look to be to young for Non Parkinsonian Tremors.

It may be nothing more than low blood sugar, but it could also be the indication of something more serious.

Get thee to a Physician!

I agree if there is uncontrolable shaking in the hands, or anywhere else it is usually the sign of something neuro, though it may not be! but if your diet is balanced and your not hypoglacimic, and you don;t have poor circulation, than it is time to concider a specialist....
