Shakes :/

I am an avid long range shooter but I have a serious problem if I focus on a taget longer than 15 seconds my head begins to shake uncontrolably. I do have random body twitches and often completely pass out when I stand up. I dont do any drugs and am not on any medication and the doctors say I'm as healthy as an ox. Is this common? Am I doing something wrong? Should I get a new doctor? lol

Re: Shakes :/

Any old war wounds? Shrapnel in the skull?

There's something out of wack somewhere.

A different doctor would be in order if it were me. More than likely it will take someone other than a general practitioner.

I recommend a university hospital.

Oh, are your skivvies too tight???? That'll do it too.

Re: Shakes :/

not to be an alarmist but doctors have been known to make a mistake or two

When I read this post the other day I figured that it was a joke posted by a first time LRH poster.

However, if you are really suffering from the symptoms stated then I would suggest you seriously follow Dr. RoyInIdaho's advice. I would.

Re: Shakes :/

as far as the shakes, my father has intention trimmers. basically the opposing muscle groups fight when you focus on something, causing a steady side to side shake. now as far as the passing out...stop drinking so much! honestly, see a specialist.

Re: Shakes :/

Don't focus on a target for more than 7 seconds and don't ever stand up, problem solved! Some states are legalizing that 5 leaf plant saying its a wonder drug, maybe?
