Hands Shaking During Fine Motor Skills
I have very poor fine motor skills: my hand writing is terrible, im awkward with my hands and its very frustrating. Is there a medical cause for this?

The problem described requires a careful history by a knowledgable physician. For example your age, is it new, is it progressive, is it lifelong, is it a problem developed after head trauma etc. You need a fine neurologist. Allow me to refer you to a 'colleague', dr.
