Hello Aymn


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com


Shaking movements that occur repeatedly involuntarily are also called tremors.


Tremor can occur when the body is at rest, usually on the hands and fingers (resting tremor), and when the body is doing activities (action tremor).

The cause of tremor is damage to the nervous system in the brain that regulates muscle movement. Several conditions can cause tremors:

Strokes
Hyperthyroidism (excess thyroid hormone in the blood)
Head trauma that damages the nervous system
Effect of drugs


My advice is that you consult a neurologist for examinations such as anamnesis (questions and answers asking about your medical history), physical examination, supporting examinations (blood test, urine test, Ct Scan). After that you will get treatment according to the cause.

There are several things that can be done to prevent this habitual tremor:

Enough sleep
Light exercise and routine
Manage stress well
Drink plenty of water at least 8 glasses/day or 2L/day
Avoid illegal drugs and drinks containing caffeine


If you experience tremors accompanied by a part of the body that cannot be moved, do not feel pain (numbness) immediately take yourself to the nearest doctor or hospital.

You can read more complete info through the tremor article


That's all the info from me, hope it helps

Greetings, Dr. Geraldine Kenya Estuworo
