I do not drink alcohol, usually have only 1 cup of coffee per day and an occasional diet coke. There is no family history of tremors that I am are of. From what I have read, essential tremor does not have any treatment. Is that correct? Also, will the tremors get worse as I age?

Its not like that.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being in follow-up.

Its not that ET do not have any treatment. Medicines like Propranolol and Primidone work well in most patients. Further, its not a rule that they get worse with age, though they frequently behave like that.

Hope that helps.If you have any further specific queries on this,I shall be glad to answer them.
