That Depends...: A general 'shakiness' can be due to weakness, or it could represent a metabolic condition unrelated to your tumor. Some meningiomas are benign and barely grow over decades, but some can cause irritation to the surface of the brain around them. I would have a thorough medical evaluation and a follow-up MRI to see which this could be.

Poss. Solution: Clearly this is really scaring you as I have seen you post 3 similar/parallel questions about your symptoms. Health tap is a super place, but it cannot replace a real md exam. Go to your doctor and discuss this - if i had something gnawing at me like this, asap. Hormonal issues, brain irritation from your mass, tremor, anxiety, medication issues, stress, too much coffee, and other things.
