I think it is probably this thing called benign essential tremor (you will have to google this). You should check with a doc, but it runs in families, and it doesn't mean anything is seriously wrong. Some people get embarrassed, is all.
Some meds cause tremor too, like lithium, if you are bipolar.
You should really get it checked out by the doc, though. I think some kinds of brain damage could do that too.
I knew someone who had a benign tremor, and i have one from lithium
