Hello and welcome to Just Answer.

It appears from your question that you already have the shakes or DTs so you are at risk of a seizure. I would suggest that you present yourself at a hospital , as you really need medical treatment.

You may need to take antianxiety and sedating medication to prevent the shaking and to help prevent a seizure. In a hospital, you can be given higher doses and then tapered down to a lower dose. You can take a presecription for a while after you leave.

You may also need an infusion or injection of vitamin B12 or other vitamins. Lack of this important vitamin also contributes to your symptoms.

Try not to stay home and do this on your own. It will be much safer and easier on you at a hospital. Best of luck.
