Tremor

 

Tremor is one of a group of Movement Disorders which also includes Tourette Syndrome.

 

Tremor is a common movement disorder that may occur in childhood.  Tremor is a rhythmic, oscillatory, shaking movement usually in the hands or head.  This is not associated with an urge and is not suppressible.  The tremor often interferes with hand writing and other fine motor tasks.  While there are many causes of tremor, the most common cause is genetic.

 

Tremor is not known to be linked to Tourette Syndrome.
