    For the last 6months i have non stop shaky hands, muscles which seriously concerns me as i believe it is something much worse (nerve damage etc.) Especially after i go to the gym it is much worse and i shake uncontrollably. I also have like pressure feelings in the top of my nose and eyes all the time.

    I have been reccommended getting 5-Htp and N-ACETYL CYSTEINE from health supplement shops. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with these substances and has helped with similiar issues??

    Hi Anxiety1p,

    I can't say that i have had an experience with either of these supplements but normally at these stores they have people working there that can give you a real run-down on the benefits of each supplement and the benefits, side effects etc. I personally prefer natural remedies first, if they work awesome! If not, then make sure you're doctor knows what is going on. I had Bell's Palsy last year which was nerve damage in my face and the entire right side of my face was totally paralysed. Was pretty scary. I was put on a high dose of a particular steroid to repair the nerve damage. So if you're concerned about it being nerve related. Definitely consult your doctor and see what he can suggest. He may want to run some tests.

    Hope this helps. All the best :-)

    I ended up getting some b complex and stress/anxiety tablets from a health shop so hopefully it helps a bit in the next coming weeks.
