Self Diagnosis and
For mild tremors, no treatment
is needed. If tremors
persist, these simple measures

may help: grasping objects firmly,
holding them close to the body
without dropping, avoiding

uncomfortable positions, not eating
soup in public, using utensils
with large handles, including

butter hooks, spittoons, and shoe horns.
Drinking alcohol in moderation
may lessen the tremor

or make it worse.
Simply holding on
to a person with a more

persistent tremor may provide
some relief. In rare instances,
those with tremors in locations

prone to earthquakes may find
their tremors, if persisting,
less apparent, less troubling.
