    Default trembling lip

    Hi

    I am 52; I have had lupus since my early 20s. I have been diagnosed with SLE since 1994, mostly affecting my joints, with bad chronic fatigue the main problems. Going on to a combination of prednisone, methotrexate, and plaquinel kept me working till last year, albeit reduced hours since 2000. Since 2000 the lungs have been bad and I now have shrinking lung syndrome. I have recently been diagnosed with myopathy of the oesophagus and vasculitis in the small bowel, to add to general problems that were until now fairly well managed by medication. I also have problems with osteoporosis which while diagnosed before the SLE has not responded to palliative medication (including Forteo). I have neuropathy in the legs which takes over the whole body but is mostly controlled with medication. I have had problems with medication toxity over time such as weight gain, type II diabetes etc. I recently lost 50 kgs in 5 months - deliberately as my liver was enlarged and fatty. The liver tests are now near normal again.

    I have noticed my lower lip is now trembling: not a tic, which is a regular beat, but an irregular tremble that is noticable when I lay down to rest and I am not concentrating on holding myself together. I know it is not Parkinson's as my ex husband has that and the symptoms start with the hand trembling. My hands don't tremble, and nothing else appears to be trembling either.

    Does anyone have any idea why I might be geting this trembling?

    Hi Jimali;
    From my research, I've found this possibility for trembling lips. The most prominent possibility that I found was the accumulation of heavy metals in the organs. Heavy metals slowly accumulate in all our organs causing a myriad of symptoms from fatigue to cancer. One of the biggest culprits is mercury, especially as found in our dental amalgam fillings. Silver amalgam fillings give off substantial amounts of mercury vapor from the moment they are placed, which is absorbed to over 80 % by the mucous membranes of the oral cavity and lungs. Mercury is lipophilic and has long been recognized as a potent neurotoxin. It has been suggested as a possible cofactor in chronic pain syndromes (such as Fibromyalgia) for many years. From these reports it appeared reasonable to suspect, that some cases of FM are caused by either infections in the oral cavity and/or by mercury toxicity. Other metals are also known as neurotoxins, amongst them lead, cadmium and aluminum.
    My research also indicated that this build up of mercury can also cause auto-immune disorders (like Lupus). I cannot diagnose what is causing your trembling lips, only provide you with information that may or may not be your case. But, it is certainly something that you can address with your doctor. The following list contains some of the well known signs and symptoms of toxic metal exposure:
    CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
    Anxiety/nervousness, often with difficulty in breathing
    Restlessness
    Exaggerated response to stimulation
    Fearfulness
