thanks for using health care magic..
I have gone through your available hisotry. You are having anxiety disorder.
You should consult psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and treatment.
Doctor may prescribe anti depressant drugs having anti-anxiety properties like peroxetine and cloazepam or alprazolam.
You should also rule out the physical causes of tremors like thyroid imbalance or neurological disturbances and vitamine B12 deficiency.
You should avoid taking alcohol if any.
Meanwhile you can also start relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation or self relaxation.

Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your given history in detail.
From your description it appears that you are having an anxiety disorder like panic disorder. However the final diagnosis can be commented on only after a detailed mental state examination. you should see a psychiatrist.
There are two types of treatment available, medications and cognitive behavioural therapy.
Among the medications. paroxetine and escitalopram are good drugs available. Clonazepam and propranolol are also good drugs. Along with the medications, also ask your psychiatrist to enroll you in some talk therapy.
All said, you will also benefit with exercise and good diet.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

From the description of your symptoms, it appears that you are suffering from an anxiety disorder, probably with panic attacks. Now, the first step in management of this problem is a detailed evaluation. This will include certain tests to rule out any possible medical conditions which could be causing this problem. You will also need a detailed psychological assessment in order to pin point the diagnosis correctly.

So, please consult a psychiatrist for further evaluation and treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication and psychotherapy, which will help you overcome your problems.

Wish you all the best.
