My shaking fingers

My fingers are always shaking and I am just in my 30s. Please let me know what I should do about it.

Your ‘shaking fingers’ is due to hand tremor. A tremor is an unintentional rhythmic movement of any part of the body. Tremors are usually caused by problems with areas of the brain that control movements. Neurological problems can cause tremors, but they can also be caused by metabolic problems and toxins (such as alcohol) that affect the brain and nervous system. Shaking fingers and tremor can also be a side effect of medications, anxiety, drug abuse, fatigue, low blood sugar and in rare cases, brain tumour. From the above, it will be a good idea if you can check if you practice any habit that could contribute to your ailment. If not, a proper medical examination will help clarify the situation.
