Have you been tested for Parkinson's disease?

Sometimes injury can bring out the tremor of parkinson's

Dr. Phil, MD :

I would recommend seeing a neurologist and specifically asking for an evaluation for Parkinson's disease. That would be the next step

It is also possible you have something called essential tremor. That is benign but annoying.
