Essential tremor is a movement disorder caused by a problem in the brain, whereby the sufferer cannot stop their hands or body from shaking. It is a degenerative condition that gets worse over time, eventually leaving the person unable to care for themselves. Essential tremor is not limited to older people as it can occur in children and runs in families. It is commonly mistaken for Parkinson's disease, and there is no cure, only therapies to help decrease the severity of the tremor.
