I have written on here fairly regularly and have a question for you. Today at brunch my wife’s right arm started shaking her hand, arm, the whole thing- and wouldn’t stop. She rushed home from the restaurant while I went to Home Depot (about an hour) and the shaking had stopped. I did notice she had drank a couple beers in that time. She said she took calcium pills and that’s why it stopped-she attributed it to calcium deficiency. Has anyone experienced this? Is it just a case of the shakes? She usually doesn’t have the shakes that early (noon). She usually starts drinking around 3 pm.
JC: Thanks Ben for being a faithful participant on this site. I am not familiar with any reasons for someone with a drinking problem to shake unless they are going through the DTs caused by withdrawal from alcohol. Hopefully a few of our readers can offer a few ideas to help. You may have the answer already for why your wife was shaking, as this article was submitted for publishing a couple of weeks ago.
