Is essential tremors curable? Is it genetic or caused by some injury later in life?

In brief: Unfortunately no

Essential tremors differ from parkinsons in that they often worsen with action & can be heriditary.
Different drugs including beta blockers & anticonvulsants have been tried but results are variable & not very encouraging.
