Tremor: Several reasons for shaking, and your brief description may be consistent with heredofamilial essential tremor, but could possess hyperthyroidism, or medication reaction. Parkinson's and Wilson's both have specific tremors, and all of the above could be considered. A neurologist will sort out, and guide therapy decisions.
