In brief: Isolated findings

The hallmarks of an essential tremor are that it happens while holding a posture (as opposed to at rest or during movement), and that it is not associated with spasticity, difficulty initiating movements, weakness, or any other symptoms.
That being said, a neurologist can help confirm the presence of an essential tremor and guide treatment.
