Essential Tremor

Alternate Names : Benign Essential Tremor, Senile Tremor, Idiopathic Tremor, ET

Essential Tremor | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

The symptoms of ET include patterned trembling in one or both hands and sometimes the head. The voice may also be shaky. The tremors are mostly mild and only happen once in awhile at first. But they slowly worsen with age.

The tremors are more obvious when the hands are in use. Rest relieves them in most cases.
