Don’t Panic ! There are many things that go through your mind when you face the challenge of an ominous symptom like a tremor. You may feel personally responsible in some way for having had developed tremors, thinking you could have done something to avoid it or that you deserve it for some reason. Or you may fear you have developed an ailment that someone you knew or close to you suffered from, he shook the same way I don’t. This is all very normal and most likely not true. Do you ever think of the same things when you get a cold or fever? You likely don’t and you should not here either. It is extremely unlikely that you have done something to cause this tremor and it is quite possible that it has nothing to do with what your loved one might have had earlier. The exact diagnosis of tremors solves many important questions. Can the tremor be cured? Will the tremor progress and how soon? Will it be disabling? Does it need to be treated? If so, how? Can I continue working? Do I need to make changes to my work? The answers to such questions are different for everyone because different tremors behave differently. A general neurologist can help manage some common types of tremors, and a movement dis- orders-trained neurologist (https://www.nebraskamed.com/neurological-care/movement-disorders) is an important resource for uncommon or difficult-to-treat tremors; and for confirmation of clinical diagnosis of the type of tremor.
