Tremor is generally 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.  Other causes include the use of some drugs (such as amphetamines, corticosteroids, and drugs used for certain psychiatric disorders), alcohol abuse or withdrawal, mercury poisoning, overactive thyroid, or liver failure.   Some forms of tremor are inherited and run in families, while others have no known cause.
