2. A Pinched Nerve
If you have been experiencing a tremor and can’t find the cause, then you could have a pinched nerve that’s causing the tremor – especially if the tremor is only occurring in one of your hands. There are a few other symptoms that tend to go along with a pinched nerve, including tingling or numbness in the elbows or fingertips: This could be a possible pinched nerve in your neck, back, shoulder or elbow – sometimes even in your wrist.
The best course of action if you suspect that a pinched nerve is behind your tremor is to seek professional help and to apply regular heat compresses in the meantime to alleviate the symptoms of discomfort and pain that you might experience. You might also want to combine this with anti-inflammatory medication to reduce pain and swelling.
Remember that you should never pick up anything heavy if you suspect a pinched nerve: See a doctor first, you could only risk worse injury.
