In brief: Neurology evaluation

Depending on her age, the acuity of her problem(s), and what test/treat strategies have been tried, a formal Neurology evaluation seems in order.

In brief: Severe anxiety

You are a very Caring Friend.
At the age of 23 years, shaking hands with memory problems may be due to: • Severe Anxiety • Recent Traumatic incidence • Use of Alcohol or Drugs • Withdrawal from Alcohol or Drugs These symptoms are treatable with good success. Speak with your friend about your concerns and suggest to see a psychiatrist and inform that you will be willing to go with your friend.

In brief: Neurologist

I would have her see a board certified neurologist to evaluate these tremors there could be a variety of causes and they should be worked up by a neurologist.
