From: From your description, it is difficult to assess whether your child is developing appropriately. Many children do not sit until 6 months and do not crawl until 7 or 8 or sometimes even not at all (and that's ok). All children develop at different rates and as long as they are developing within the established range of normal, it's fine - that's what makes comparing 2 kids to each other an inaccurate way of assessing development. Your son may have been advanced and your daughter is normal. That being said, if you have concerns, it is important that you have a professional do a thorough developmental evaluation on her to make sure she is progressing appropriately. If there is a problem, the earlier she begins therapy, the better off she will be in the long run. Contact your child's doctor to discuss your concerns. They will either be able to assess her development themselves or send you to a specialist who can assess her. (many organizations who provide developmental therapy conduct their own exams). I hope this helps! ...Read more

Please do see your primary care physician to evaluate possible causes and get help. ...Read more

If you drink lots of coffee etc., cut back! ...Read more

Unshake my Hands?: Probably reducing or changing the meds would be the most sensible method. Your doctor would be the one to talk with about this. Some might add another medication, but why do that if your regimen can be simplified and your symptoms relieved?

Painful Grasp: Mild pain or discomfort when grasping things can be due to a variety of reasons. The muscles into your hand called intrinsics could be tight. Joints can swell temporarily due to arthritis or sprains. Tendonitis can be another reason. If symptoms persist seek advice from a hand specialist. ...Read more

Cerebellar problems, and ms could cause tremors on coordinated activities. Wilson's disease causes wing beating tremor. Anxiety, if intense, can result in trembling.

Cause?: It depends on the cause of the trembling. Pt/ot probably won't do much to improve tremors that are from a systemic neurologic condition (one that affects your whole body).
