In brief: Possibly

Shaky hands could be the manifestation of a large number of conditions.
You may be extremely agitated or worried over something, you might be dehydrated from fever and lack of fluid intake, you might have low blood pressure for a variety of reasons. It is so non-specific that it is difficult to categorize, but if it is disturbing, or persistent, see your doctor.
