Re: tremors

Your problem looks to be systemic meaning its happening all over. I would suspect a metobolic issue (electrolytes), low calcium can lead to involuntary muscular contraction and even spasm (tetany). I would have your doctor run a metobolic panel and check calcium and other electrolyte levels. If that checks out fine, then its time to think about other causes such as Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. Other causes include Wilson's disease, a hereditary disorder in which toxic levels of copper accumulate in the tissues; mercury poisoning; an over-active thyroid gland; and liver encephalopathy.
