What is a tremor?

Tremors are involuntary muscle contractions and relaxations that are accompanied by oscillations and twitching motions in one or more body areas. It’s a common neurological condition that affects the eyes, face, head, arms, hands, trunk, legs, and even the vocal cords. Tremor affects the eyes and hands in the majority of instances.

Tremor is not a disorder in some persons. It’s more of a symptom of a pre-existing neurological condition. Teeth chattering is a typical type of tremor that is triggered by strong emotions or chilly temperatures. Tremor is self-limiting and tolerable in its lesser forms. But in the more severe forms, tremor needs medical intervention and may cause some serious systemic impacts.
