A number of causes: Could be neurologic in origin/Parkinsons, intention tremors, medication induced, thyroid conditions. Best to discuss this with your primary doc. Important to see if the tremors are one sided, coarse or fine
Alcohol withdrawal: Alcohol and other similar sedatives (barbiturates, benzodiazepines etc.) produce a physical dependency. When the drug is withdrawn (wears off overnight), morning tremor ("the shakes") commonly occur. It is a result in part of high levels of adrenaline produced in withdrawal, which also raise blood pressure and pulse and increase sweating. This is a sign of alcohol dependency - get medical help.
Asthma: Asthma and any other condition that causes shortness if breath can likely cause some degree of tremulousness but also give consideration to the medications used to treat asthma. Two common symptoms of short beta adrenergic agonists (such as albuterol/ ventilin) are tremulousness and palpitations.
Brain stimulator??: If your hand shaking is from essential tremor (an inherited disorder that would be present in one of your parents) and the tremor interferes with your performance of important activities (such as drinking from a cup, eating in public, writing, putting on make-up, using a computer, etc), then a deep brain stimulator (dbs) could be extremely beneficial. Consultation w the right doc could tell you.
Not the cause: About 1% of people develop familial tremor which comes on in the teenaged years. Enjoying your body isn't the cause. Your physician can treat you and make the tremor vanish. If you have a more serious tremor, you need to be under a physician's care.
Meds: No one medication is best; it all depends on the patient's needs, combined with how well they respond to whatever that medication might be. Often, finding the right med in the right dosage is arrived at by trial and error.See 3 more doctor answers

Lol...Are you on medications such as Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) or other stimulant for any reason? Anybody in your family with same type of hand tremors?
