Tremor: The commonest tremor is the intention tremor that only occurs when you are using your hands to write or drink coffee for example. Unlike Parkinson's disease tremor which is present when the hands are at rest. The intention tremor commonly runs in families. There are medications to treat intention tremors. A neurologist can evaluate and advise you best.
