My hand shakes, the tremor continues and my friends and family noticed it.

Hi, I do not know whether this requires medical or not but I guess it worth a try. The thing is that my hand shakes or as I’ve research known as tremor especially the right one. I believe it started around the age of 16 or 17. In the beginning I didn’t think that I should be concerned with it. However, the tremor continues until now. I am now 18 going 19 this month. It doesn’t affect my writing, drawing but it shake when i rest my hand. It doesn’t when i sleep. However when i rely on my right hand to carry stuff such as holding the phone on one hand (right), my right hand shakes. It got a bit visible these days that my friends and family noticed it. Could it be due to coffee?When it comes to coffee, my dose is quite high ( ristretto bianco) and i had start drinking coffee at the age of 15. What do you think about it?

Hi and welcome to question doctors .com
Caffeine is thought to inhibit the absorption of iron and some of the A and B vitamins..so it may be causing depleted vitamin levels and increased anxiety …increased adrenaline levels …and so shaking and tremors..
In your age it is rarely anything else.
Reduce caffeine and practice some yoga..get vitamins in dark leafy vegetables and fruits.. Poultry and meat are rich in b12 also..

My brother had similar symptoms and turns out he has C-M-T. Its a neurological disease beginning in childhood usually accompanied by leg pains, high or fallen arches and shaking hands especially when concentrating on doing a certain job. If these symptoms mimic yours I suggest you visit a neurologist.
