My dad had what they called a non essential tremors. No parkinsons etc. He would get so bad at times he would make fun at himself as he knew soup would be everywhere but in his mouth. He could not carry a cup of tea. As he said, someone had drank it on the way to his chair,

As much as it can be funny it isn't. I do hope that the Dr can find a reason for this happening and help you. My hands shake terribly if my thyroid medication is off.

Expect the worst in life you won't be disapointed and you'll be prepared!

I have a tremor in my left hand which can, at times, be a little embarrassing. I was at a coffee morning thing for new members to something I joined. They handed round cups and saucers. Nightmare. Tried changing hands and could not hold it. An elderly lady came up to me and said, very sympathetically, "Parkinson's is it? I find just putting the saucer down helps". I even went to the doctor but she wasn't worried. Anyway at a check for MS last year he told me I have a tremor. No treatment lol just watch out. After using a strimmer/gardening etc most people will have residual muscle twitching shaking. that is very normal . similar to when one carries a heavy shopping bag.

Like many I try to laugh when I'm shaking and the children make gentle fun. But I find it hard if I'm out at a lunch or something. Often have to just give up with my left hand. I'm sure then nerves make it worse too.
