Thanks for posting your query.
Fine tremors in hand and leg is experienced by many people. It is known as Essential tremors. these tremors are postural, intention or resting-type tremors.Essential tremors are often associated with mild walking difficulty and hearing disability, and tend to run in families. It may be triggered by fatigue muscles, stress or caffeine. So you need to avoid these triggers.
You are advised to visit a doctor for physical examination, he may prescribe you tranquilizers to relieve tremors that are triggered by anxiety.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
