Please ignore that first post: site glitch.

It is clear you have stated he has a negative medical history

This could be heart.

It could also be hyperthyrodism.

It might be another hormonal problem, more rare, such as pheochromacytoma.

Nausea and the shakes can be after alcohol use, so this should be ruled out at well.

Take him to an internal medicine doctor.
