Tremors refer to a rhythmic movement of a localized bodily site that is both unintentional and uncontrollable. They indicate some dysfunction in that part of the brain which controls muscle movement. Though not always serious, tremors may be a by-product of serious disorders which require treatment and medication. Tremors themselves are not easy to treat, though if not associated with any other disease, they may stop occurring on their own over time. Here are 5 common types of tremors that one may suffer through the course of their lifetime.
Psychogenic tremors are prompted by some underlying psychological condition. Involuntary muscle movements whereby psychological events produce physical symptoms, distress/dysfunction causes tremors or illnesses stimulate bodily action for psychological reasons, all fall within this category. Psychogenic tremors can mobilize any body part, and the intensity varies from person to person. These usually develop suddenly and occur at random with complete or partial remissions.
