Welcome to HCM

Stress and nervousness lead to symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety may present with tremors, sweating, dryness of throat etc. symptoms. If you are getting tremors that are causing embarrassment to you and is hampering your work then I would advise you to visit a Psychiatrist for expert opinion.
You can try relaxation exercises, yoga, meditation for control of anxiety and consequent control of tremors.
Medicines like beta blockers as Propranolol etc are very useful in controlling features of anxiety and also tremors.

Thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone through your available history.
I think you are having performance anxiety. if you also have fear of society or stage fear of nervousness against superior authority, you may have social anxiety disorder.

You should consult psychiatrist for detailed evaluation. meanwhile you can try relaxation therapy loke yoga or meditation and self motivation

Welcome to health care magic
I can understand your situation. I appreciate your effort to seek online support.

As per your details, you are possibly having underlying anxiety. For this consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation. Following treatment strategies would be helpful-

1) Antianxiety agents like SSRIs (escitalopram, sertarline, paroxetine etc), Benzodiazepines like clonazepam, lorazepam, alprazolam etc
2) Psychotherapy/ Counselling sessions
3) Relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, deep breathing etc
4) Avoid tea, coffee and other caffeine products which might increase this shivering of hands

Hope it helps
Good luck
