Action Tremor

Action tremor is an uncontrollable tremor when intentionally trying to do a task such as signing your name. Like position tremor, action tremor presents significant challenges for those who suffer from it. For example, when trying to drink a cup of coffee, write a check, sign a paper, simply trying to button clothes in the morning, the constant, uncontrollable shaking while intentionally doing tasks interferes with daily, normal activities. It can be very embarrassing to simply try to go out and eat at a restaurant or a neighbor's home.
