Brief Answer:
Probably essential tremors or anxiety!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed this information fully. At his age, this might be related to anxiety, or in a few cases to alcohol and coffee intake. If he takes any of these products, I strongly recommend that you stops them.

If this doesn't regress spontaneously, I will recommend that he gets propranolol or clonazepam for relief. However, there is no urgency needed at treating this unless it interferes with his daily activities.

I hope this helps. I wish your son well. Keep me updated.
