Why do I have such shaky hands?

I don't drink coffee, lots of fizzy pop, no overdoses of sugar or anything like that but I still have very shaky hands! The only thing I could think of was having an electric toothbrush but lots of people do but still don't have shaky hands :S help

    Some people just have a natural tremor. It's called essential tremor, often runs in families, and unfortunately you are stuck with it. However you should visit a doctor, because there are some more serious causes of tremor which they might want to rule out. If it is really bothering you and interfering with daily life, they may prescribe beta blockers such as propranolol, or a drug called primidone, to help relieve the symptoms.

    Hope this helps, I'm afraid this is not my speciality.
