Have you consulted a neurologist? I would recommend that you see this type specialist as most helpful step.

There are different potential reasons as to the reason behind your tremor symptoms

The pattern that you describe sounds very likely to fit with BENIGN ESSENTIAL TREMOR as possible cause

This type may respond to a beta blocker treatment -- INDERAL is a medicine may help If that is the cause

BENIGN ESSENTIAL TREMOR is often more pronounced of the head/ neck...

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Hello thanks. Few questions I've asked. A few people if it's a side effect to my pain meds oxycodone and they all say no.
Would nortriptyline be something for this ? My wife suggested it as she has it but I don't want to take anything quick like that.
It's not painful just so bothersome when u r trying to relax. Valium helped at night

Hello again,

If it is BENIGN ESSENTIAL TREMOR as I most suspect to be your culprit then NO -- I would not expect Nortriptyline to help...

Valium should be helpful --- yes to that

Inderal would be probably more helpful still....

I strongly advise that you consult a neurologist for evaluation and treatment ....

I hope that this helps!

Let me know if you have anything further ...

Best regards!

No I don't think it a side effect of oxycodone either ....
