There are several different kinds of "tremors" that affect people for various reasons. There are some movements that really aren't considered "tremors" as such, but are classified as "movement disorders". The signify a problem with an area of the brain called the basal ganglia. There is the 3/second "pill rolling" tremor that is classic of Parkinson's disease. A very fine tremor could indicate hyperthyroidism and that would need to be diagnosed and treated. There is also benign essential tremor, which is not really associated with a disease. There may be some genetic component to it. If it needs to be treated, beta blockers such as propranolol are very effective at controlling essential tremor. I hope that this was helpful.
