    Familial Tremor or essential tremor. i started to suffer from this as a teen. it seems to shake worse at inconvenient times such as when i'm trying to eat. or it shakes worse when i am excited. it can be quite embarrassing. my shakes would get worse when some one would point it out. i have familial tremor, meaning that other family members share this hereditary ailment. it is a dominant gene meaning if you acquire the gene from only one family member you will have it. and you have a 50-50 chance of passing it to your child en. it is not life threatening. its more of a nuisance. who else in your family shakes? mom, dad, brother or sister? google it. i am 35 and i just got a name for this mystery problem that i've had for is a neurological disorder.
