    The types of tremors and tremor symptoms differ and depend on the underlying disease, disorder or condition.

    Essential tremor is the most common of the more than 20 types of tremor. The exact cause of essential tremor is not known, but a genetic component is involved in many cases. This means that essential tremor can be inherited from your parents. Essential tremor is usually amplified by extreme emotion, stress, physical exhaustion, and low blood sugar.

    Parkinsonian tremor is caused by changes in the brain that lead to abnormal movements. People with Parkinson’s disease also experience rigidity of the arms, legs, and trunk and eventually develop bradykinesia, which is a slowness of movement that includes sudden freezing of muscle movement. They also have problems with balance and coordination. The exact cause of Parkinson’s disease is not known, but research suggests that both genetic and environmental factors play a role.

    Cerebellar tremoris caused by brain damage from a stroke, tumor, or degenerative disease like multiple sclerosis. Chronic alcoholism can also cause cerebellar tremor. Cerebellar tremor is most pronounced in the hands during a particular action, such as reaching out for something or touching the tip of your nose. Cerebellar tremor may also be called intentiontremor.

    I've never heard of a 20 yr old having shaky hands unless they are on drugs, withdrawing from drugs or drinking too much caffeine.

    You definitely need to go to a doctor, and if you don't have a doctor, an urgent care facility always has at least 1 doctor that will be able to give you an idea. Maybe even get you an appointment with a neurologist.

    You're too young to have Parkinsons. Use the symptom checker at webmd.
