1. Parkinson's Disease.

Your hand shakes when you have Parkinson's tremors because the brain cells that tell your muscles to move are damaged. You might also notice yourself moving more slowly, having difficulties balancing, or having your arms and legs freeze up. Medication and surgery are the main treatments for greater muscular control.

2. Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

A physical or occupational therapist can assist you in managing your post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms (PTSD). Myelin, a protective layer on your nerves, is damaged by this illness. You may have symptoms such as shaking in your hands or other parts of your body if this happens.

Many different types of prescription medicines can cause twitchy hands as a side effect. Mood, seizure, migraine, neuropathy, and asthma medications are among the most common. This is also a side effect of several antihistamines.

When you don't get enough sleep, your brain may command your hands to tremble by mistake. Fortunately, by getting some more shut-eye, you can snooze your way back to stable hands.

9. Brain Damage.

Your hands may be impacted if you're feeling wobbly, or if you've had a stroke or severe brain damage. To address shakiness, consult your doctor about medication or occupational therapy. Also, avoid caffeine, nicotine, and anything else that aggravates the symptoms.

10. Vitamin B12 deficiency.
