What causes Benign Essential Tremors?

Update:

Izzy -----it is not caused by anxiety. It is a definitely a tremor diagnosed by a doctor. is also not curable but can be treated by a beta blocker. The prescription is Teva-Pranol 40 mgs which has decreased the tremors by half. Not every body has this.It also causes severe strain on the right side of the neck..

    Everybody has a slight tremor, caffeine, fatigue or anxiety can make it more noticeable.

    About half of essential tremor cases appear to occur because of a genetic mutation and is known as familial tremor.
