Essential Tremor is rhythmically shaking muscles are the principle symptoms of essential tremor, a degenerative neurological disorder of the central nervous system. The tremors are typically worse when trying to perform an action than when you are at rest. In this way, it is different from Parkinson's Disease, but the two conditions are nevertheless similar and related. In fact, an individual can experience both conditions at the same time.

The cause of essential tremor is most likely genetic. The resulting tremors, like a low-grade muscle spasm, are most likely to occur in the hands but can affect any of the body's muscles. Other essential tremor symptoms are limited, but the condition may affect your balance while walking and may begin to affect the shaking of the head and change your vocalizations.
