Psychiatrist 's  Response
The symptom you are describing trembling of hands in presence of people is a classic symtom of social anxiety disorder/ social phobia. It is a common problem with a high prevalence rate. Effective management is available in form of anti-anxiety medication as well as psychotherapy techniques (like exposure and response prevention). Performance related anxiety is common in this patient population which can be tackled effectively. Wish you early recovery.

Psychiatrist Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptom of having shakiness of the hands only in the presence of people is indicative of Social Anxiety. This is a type of anxiety disorder where the person feels uncomfortable around people. They can also have other symptoms such as feeling nervous, fear of criticism, as well as other physical symptoms of anxiety.

Treatment is available in the form of medication as well as psychological therapies such as behaviour therapy, biofeedback, etc. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment.

Wish you all the best.
