Hi,

You are having only shaking complaint. So it could be viral infection that leads such presentation. For your primary workup, CBC, liver and kidney profile and serum TSH estimation should be done.

If any other associated complaint present like convulsion, headache, slurred speech etc than mention it.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
