Why would someones hands shake after working out?

So I know this lady. I just learned that her hands shake after working out. It does not matter what she does either. Yoga, cardio, weights... anything.

Do you have any idea what may be causing this?

I thought about a possible sensitivity to nightshades.

What do you think?

Who down voted this? I know someone who really has this problem and I would not mind an answer. I thought of nightshades.

I think this is a valid question. Perhaps someone else has this experience and doesn't think to themselves "nightshades!" until they read this...(or something else).

I really have no idea why this was down voted. The system has to change.

My thoughts exactly. Try to write a couple sentences right after an intense exercise session- it doesn't work very well.

Is it just hands? it's not a muscle fatigue associated with her pushing hard and her body going into "shock"

Oh give me a break! There is nowhere near enough information in the original post to jump to any conclusions in regards to "this lady". To give any advice on this topic without further facts (i.e. diet, intensity of work out, etc) is highly irresponsible and mirrors the useless flailing seen in the medical community. Not everything is caused by some type of nutrient deficiency or blood sugar imbalance.

Ok. Not an answer but when I read this for the 3rd time I FINALLY realized you didn't say "why would someone shake hands after working out". Obviously my vision hasn't improved at all despite eating paleo. Sheesh.

Its usually just down to the exhaustion of small fine motor neurons leaving only the larger ones activating movement.

I sometimes have this after VERY high intensity HIT training. I'm guessing it's from glycogen depletion? Btw, do you actually get low blood sugar immediately following a workout? I thought the process of cleaving glycogen from its stores temporarily RAISED one's blood sugar?

I suppose if you've worked out past the point of glycogen depletion, you'd have lower blood sugar, but you'd also likely faint!

too much adrenaline makes my hands shake. maybe if her blood sugar crashes and her cortisol is very high, her body goes into some kind of shock and adrenaline is trying to "save her life".

other comments on this thread are also good possibilities.

Yup. Low blood sugar, fatigue (muscular or neural), alcohol withdrawal, MS, Parkinson's, the list goes on. If this is a real problem it needs professional attention...from a real doctor.

If it's only after working out, I would think of tired arm muscles, or low blood sugar.

How long before the shaking goes away? And what makes it stop? Eating? Resting? Other?

From what I know, nightshades contribute to inflammation which mainly manifests itself as pain in joint and exacerbation of arthritis.

Low blood sugar after working out, Caffeine crash, alien hand syndrome? To many possibilities without knowing her.

Not sure, but after I work out, especially intense workouts, I get very dizzy and can't concentrate/focus on anything for a while. Never figured out why.
