    Adrenaline release. Some people are very sensitive, and develop the "shakes" under stress. In conditions such as benign essential tremor, the stress can be minimal. Had a patient once who could write checks at home just fine. If he had to sign his name when someone was watching , he shook badly, had to go home and get his wife to sign for him at times. Anyone can shake if there is enough adrenaline.

    See your doctor. There are medicines (not tranquilizers) that work well.

    Some people shake for everything it's just them sometimes they can't control it because the emotion or fear is too much.
