Dear hafaadai,

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam,measure your blood pressure,echocardiogram to rule out heart pathology as during passing bowel movement you do a vasalva maneuver which activates autonomic nervous system,but due to heart pathology(back flow of blood) it may cause similar shakiness after passing bowel movement,
Ask the physician also to do fasting blood glucose levels and serum TSH as imbalance of blood glucose levels or thyroid levels may also cause similar symptoms too.
