Hi, I just began having slight head tremors. I have history of heart disese in my family and will be seeing a heart doctor soon. I also have major depression . Sometimes I feel flushed when I am anxious and could this be part of the tremors. I also had 2 rear end collisions in October. Any ideas on the tremors? Thanks!

Hi there, thanks for asking. It could be related to your depression and anxiety or it could be related your neck injury following the collision. If it has caused some ligament injury, that may trigger the tremors and it is better to ask your doctor to assess it further. It may also be an early sign of Parkinson's disease so it is important to ask your doctor to have a full exam to see what the reason might be. It could also be a part of symptoms related to post concussion syndrome (after head injury) which is very important to avoid accurate mental activities if it is diagnosed. I wish you a good health.

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

Tremors can be due to medical causes as well as psychological causes. Medical causes include neurological disorders, systemic conditions like hyperthyroidism, etc. Psychological causes like anxiety disorders can often present with physical symptoms such as tremors.

You wiould need a detailed evaluation - including a neurological examination and further investigations, as per necessity - in order to pin point the cause of your tremors. So, I would advise you to see your doctor for a detailed evaluation and further management of your tremors.

Wish you all the best.
