An Essential Tremor is a nervous system (neurological) disorder causing involuntary and rhythmic shaking.

It can affect any part of the body, but the trembling occurs most often in the hands particularly noticable with fine motoric actions or with the outstretched hands.

Essential tremors can occur at any age and start gradually and are more prominently on one side. It can later affect both hands and worsen movements fatigue and stress.

The condition is considered to be either genetically inherited (familial tremor) or age related (over 40) disorder.
