HI
These seem like tremors.
It could be due to Parkinson disease,a stroke or multiple sclerosis ,hereditary disorders involving the cerebellum, such as Friedreich ataxia and spinocerebellar ataxias or Psychogenic tremor .See a neurologist soon and get investigated .take care
Hope it helps.

Hi..
Yes, you need to get checked.
It can be a sign of stroke..
Can be related to many other conditions like Parkinsonism, M.S etc..
So once consult an Emergency room and get evaluated..
An MRI and blood test can be done for confirmation..

Hope this helps..

Regards..
