Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.
Regarding your tremors, it seems to be a case of essential tremors, where shaking can occur in head, voice, neck and hands. Treatment is with inderal (beta blockers).
Losar is a good medicine for BP control and can be continued.
TMT positive and normal stress thalium are conflicting. However, if you continue to have chest pain or breathlessness, you can go for a coronary angiogram to confirm if you have a blockage of any heart blood vessel.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
