Unhappy HELP! Car is shaking violently when drive.

Hi all. So here's what's going on.

Background - I haven't hit any potholes or speed bumps or anything like that.

Issue - When I drive the car wants to veer to the right and it feels like I have a flat tire. The steering wheel shakes when I am driving and when I brake the car and steering wheel shake violently. It started all of the sudden when I was driving down a neighborhood street and progressively got worst with highway driving. I am scared to drive it and break anything. there is nothing leaking from the undercarriage and the tires look fine.. I am hoping that it could be a seized brake pad or something cheap.... any ideas?

Maybe an alignment issue since you said it veers to the right?

Or damaged a wheel? Threw off some weights off the tire(s)?

Or your torque sensor is dirty. My thoughts whenever I hear a shaking wheel.

Is there any way you guys can explain more in detail what to look for? I am limited in my technical knowledge. Thank you.

UPDATE - I just took it around the block to check to see if it had gotten worst before I drove to the shop. The problem is gone.... so maybe a stuck caliper? I'll change my brakes tomorrow and check

Definitely sounds like a dirty torque sensor. Was there a humidity/temeperature difference when you noticed the shaking vs today?
