  • My family all have what is known as Essential tremors, also known as ET. ET's main downside is that it is socially isolating, people can be so rude when they don't understand or care to understand that shaking hands don't only mean some one needs a drink or smokes crack. Go to wemove.org to learn more about this and other movement disorders.God Bless

  • This is known as essential tremor and tends to be hereditary. It is typically exacerbated on purposeful movement such as reaching and grasping, with some dysmetria observed when testing coordination and tracking. It is not indicative of any of the movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease and symptoms are usually diminished when consuming an alcoholic beverage. Stress can indeed cause the tremor to become more pronounced in some patients. If the tremor is disrupting your occupational abilities or lifestyle, then speak to your primary care physician. There are certain medications which when used in very small doses, can bring relief to your symptoms. Best regards, J Cottle, MD
