I have a coworker whose hands shake as well but she has a medical problem that causes it. Could be a lot of different reasons.

There are several reasons, too much caffeine or alcohol can make one shake. There is also a disorder that a colleague has, which his hands are always shaking. Cant remember name though. He doesnt drink much or use caffeine.

My husband has shakey hands sometimes, he was worried about it because a relative had Parkinson's but his doctor says it's related to the migraines he gets.

It is just something I've noticed.
When I get extremely emotionally stressed, I can get shaky. Barring any ailments, this is the most likely cause.

I get the tremors sometimes when I'm really hungry and my blood sugar is low. It's funny sometimes, because I am willing my hands to do one thing, but they refuse to listen. It's like, fine motor skills are out the door when the body needs glucose.

Gotta be careful with that shaking - remember ... no matter how much you wiggle and dance the last drop always stays in your pants.

My brother, God rest his soul, and I have been like that since we were at least 4. I do it even when I'm not nervous. I don't know what brings it on.
