In brief: Consider metal toxin

Most neurologist will evaluate the type of tremor you have and classify it as benign-not needing treatment -or indicative of underlying disease needing neurologic work-up.
The cause is rarely explored but if you can find something that stops the tremor, it may provide a clue.. Familial tremors usually respond to a low dose of a beta-blocking drug like propranol. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplu.
