Conclusions. A neurologist can make a diagnosis for you. It could be several things, some simple and some more complex. The doc will tell you and help you. Peace and good health.

Tremors, or shakes have many causes. Mostly at a young age are what are called "physiologic" and not "pathologic". That means, most are a normal variant rather than sign of any disease. Common causes of tremors include stress, caffeine, nicotine, and other stimulants. If in both hands, that is a symmetric tremor, those are less concerning than those that only involve one side of the body.

If not due to hyperthyroidism or a medication, could be you possess heredofamilial tremor. If only tremor, would not suspect Parkinson's, MS, or even Wilson's disease.
