Similarly when I pick up small/light objects like needle or cutlery my hands used to shiver and it becomes severe when I am getting tensed.Can you please advise on the same
May I know your age and gender?

Have you seen a doctor for this problem?
Do you smoke or consume alcohol?
I have not seen doctor for this
But this problem was there from my childhood itself .. once I asked our family doctor. He just ignored telling its because of anxeity
Has any one else in your family - parents, brothers, cousins or close relatives suffer with similar problems?
Because I am a bit nervous guy
Let me brief you.
Tremors or involuntary shaking of hands is definitely associated with anxiety. However if the symptoms are present every day with minimal stress
we will need to rule out other possibilities.
A few conditions that are known to cause such problems are:
1. Essential tremors
The fact you are able to type without much difficulties rules out the last possibility.
You will need to consult a doctor preferably a neurologist to rule out the first 2 possibilities.
He/she will also prescribe you betablocker group of drug such as propranolol which will relieve your symptoms.
A neurologist will be the ideal person to consult for this problem.
Have you followed what I suggested?
Do you have any query?
You are welcome.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
