Brief Answer:
Can be a number of causes, get investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Lower jaw quivering can occur due to a number of causes like a condition known as Essential tremor or certain diseases like Parkinsonism, Multiple Sclerosis, side effects of certain medications, alcohol withdrawal, severe stress and anxiety etc..

So first of all a Brain MRI scan should be done to rule out or eliminate the causes..

Treatment can only be decided once the diagnosis is confirmed..

Hope you get well soon..
