my mother in law has had a hand tremor for about 1 year now. she has been to several doctors but no answers other than just a tremor and it happens with age. the last dr she went to said it is stress! her hand shakes uncontrollable constantly unless she is asleep. any answers are welcomed. help

  • How old she is? She moves quickly or slowly? The reason may be the use of some drugs .. What medications taken? My guess: Parkinson's disease, Hyperthyroidism But it may be the age ....she is 76.she gets around great, only problem is the constant shaking of her handshe is not on any meds at all. except for nerve meds for the shaking, but they dont help...she only takes one at night.
