Tremor is most common among middle-aged and older adults, although it can occur at any age. The disorder generally affects men and women equally.
Tremor is not life threatening and typically are caused by a problem in the deep parts of the brain that control movements. Most types of tremor have no known cause, although there are some forms that appear to be inherited and run in families.
Tremor can occur on its own or be a symptom associated with a number of neurological disorders, including:
• multiple sclerosis
• traumatic brain injury
• neurodegenerative diseases that affect parts of the brain (e.g., Parkinson's disease).
Some other known causes can include:
• the use of certain medicines (particular asthma medication, amphetamines, caffeine, corticosteroids, and drugs used for certain psychiatric and neurological disorders)
• alcohol abuse or withdrawal
• mercury poisoning
• overactive thyroid
• liver or kidney failure
• anxiety or panic.
