In brief: Many causes

It is important to get a thorough medical evaluation.
If these are new problems that seem to be getting worse, then a detailed neurological evaluation would be appropriate. Side effects from medications, metabolic problems, toxic effects, liver and kidney disease can all cause similar problems. Discuss these with your doctor.
