A 23-year-old male asked:

how tremors (shivring of hands, while grabbing something)can be cured?

4 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Nassir Azimi
Interventional Cardiology 23 years experience
Depends on the cause: Some time Propranolol can help. See your doctor.
Dr. Quang Nguyen
Specializes in Endocrinology
Depends: Agree with dr. Azimi. Many things can cause tremor (drug, drug side effects, benign tremor, parkinson...). Successful treatment depends on the cause. Please see your doctor to figure out the cause so you can be treated accordingly.
Dr. Susan Wingo
Endocrinology 33 years experience
Get thyroid checked: Too much thyroid hormone can cause tremors. It can also cause the heart to race or pound, someone to feel hot all the time, and be jittery or irritable. Your doctor can check labs to see if this is the problem.
Dr. Jennie Law
Endocrinology 14 years experience
Depends on cause: Might want your family doctor to look into it, and decide if you need a neurologist. It can be caused by many things, and the treatment depends on the cause. If many family members have it too, it can be an 'essential tremor, ' and while i is not curable, meds can reduce symptoms.

Dr. Aileen Shieu
Hand Surgery 20 years experience
Depends: This may depend on what kind of surgery you have and how stiff your fingers and wrist are. Oftentimes, you will be given a set of exercises by your surgeon, which may be enough. However, if you are not making progress, or are having a lot of pain or swelling, your surgeon may have you see a hand therapist.
