Intention tremor: An intention tremor occurs when the hand is moving and stops when the hand is still. It can be caused by a variety of neurological disorders, as well as the normal aging process. See your doctor for a comprehensive evaluation.

offen there's a history of tremor in the family. You should ask if your parents or other family member have it. Did you get your thyroid checked?
