Customer Question

Why would someone start shaking involuntarily? He said he was cold but was not cold or hot to the touch. Normal temperature. After several minutes the shaking has stopped and he is sleeping.
JA: Do you have a fever? Do you have any other existing medical conditions?
Customer: No fever. He is in recovery from pneumonia, has just finished a course of anti-biotics called clindamycin and seemed to be better and stronger.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: He has advanced Parkinson's and is medicated regularly for that. He is 92 years old. But what causes the shaking?
