Thank you for getting in touch. As I see, you have been having tremors in your hands and legs for sometime. Tremors can be seen in many different diseases, Wilson being one of them. But along with that, there are other characteristic signs and symptoms seen in Wilson's like KF rings in the iris, increase in serum copper, drop in ceruloplasmin. Your Doctor must have kept those things in mind while ruling that out. You should discuss with your Doctor if this is a case of essential tremor. In essential tremor, no cause can be identified. But for that, all other causes have to be ruled out. Once diagnosed, it can be easily managed with medicines. Hope this helped.
