    when do u have the tremor? is it at rest or when u try to use it or only when u are afraid of something. essential tremor occurs during a proposed action. Different fr that of Parkinson's that is at rest. also people with phobia have tremors during attack. see a neurologist for management. thanks

    i think it might be phobia related. essential tremors are hereditary too. i cant give u a precise diagnosis unless i see it and examine it. Please kindly go and see a neurologist.

    Can any drug be prescribed and is it something to panic about. of phobia related can it be cured using drugs

    it can be treated with some anxiolytics but more of a psychotherapy approach will be as effective. U still need to see a doctor for proper examination as thyroid gland disorders can present same way.
