Hi Anonymous and welcome to EmpowHER.

If you are saying that your hands are shaking and you are unable to control these movements, the clinical term for what you are describing is tremor.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, tremor is an unintentional, rhythmic muscle movement involving to-and-fro movements (oscillations) of one or more parts of the body.  It is the most common of all involuntary movements and can affect the hands, arms, head, face, voice, trunk, and legs.  Most tremors occur in the hands.  

The most common form of tremor occurs in otherwise mostly healthy people.  Although tremor is not life-threatening, it can be embarrassing to some people and make it harder to perform daily tasks.

In some people, tremor is caused by problems in parts of the brain that control muscles throughout the body or in particular areas, such as the hands. Neurological disorders or conditions that can produce tremor include multiple sclerosis, stroke, traumatic brain injury and neurodegenerative diseases that damage or destroy parts of the brainstem or the cerebellum.

If you think your tremors are due to a serious health problem it would be best to schedule an appointment with your healthcare professional for further evaluation.

Hope that helps,
