  • This is likely due to essential tremor, but can also be the consequence of stress or anxiety, depending upon the characterization of the tremor itself. If the tremor activity subsides after consuming an alcoholic beverage, then it would further suggest the cause is essential tremor, which is basically non-pathological and familial in origin. If the tremor is significant enough, several medications are available through your primary care physician that can reduce the intensity. Incidentally, the practice of masturbation to whatever extent desired will yield no negative consequences, certaintly not a tremor of the type described. The suggestion would appear to be consistent with jousting from one's peers, who in the absence of common sense further demonstrate their lack of empathy. Best regards, J Cottle, MD

  • Thank you Mr. Cottle for your suggestion and I am glad to know that it is not because of masturbation,The tremor is not because of alcohol because I don't drink alcoholic beverages so I think this tremor is because of anxiety and it is very much severe when i have anxiety and I also heard the tremor may cause because of genetic ,since my father is having same problem but in his case he is having this problem because of the Lithium medicines he takes the medicines for depression as he is taking this medicines since long time from last 25 years , I feel tremor even when I am not feeling anxiety but it is not very much significantAs my behavior is quiet most of the time I am stressed and thinking too much Could you please help me how to get cure from this?
