I notice that after I lift something heavy and later when I sit down and pick up a cup my hands start shaking and I can t hold the cup. this just started, so was wondering if this is something I should be concerned about. I am 70 years old and other than having arthritis I am basically healthy. thank you
the shaking could be due to an essential tremor. If the shaking started all of a sudden, a small stroke could be the cause. If your movement have also slowed down overall, consider possible Parkinson'd disease. Thank you.
