If you are taking some medications, this could be a side effect. Dose may need to be adjusted or Meds discontinued or change to another kind. Talk to your doctor.

Tremor: A variety of neurological conditions can cause head shaking. If a no-no direction, this could be due to familial essential tremor or hyperthyroidism. If in a yes-yes direction, could be a cerbellar titubation tremor. A disorder called wilson's disease may cause tremors, and many other conditions could be considered. Medication reactions may be an issue. See a neurologist.
