There are several things that could be causing your hand to shake, actually.

The fact that it's only happening to one hand makes me think it's probably muscular, rather than the sign of a disease.

What Can I Do About My Shaking Hand?
I think you should start by working out what activities might be making your hand shake.

If you only get hand tremors when you're using that hand - for eating or writing, for example - then it's likely that you've damaged a muscle or tendon. If this is the case, try resting your arm for a while!

However, if your hand shakes when it's resting, then there might be a more serious problem. I'd recommend going to your doctor if your hand doesn't stop trembling after a week or so!

What If Both My Hands Are Shaking?
You could be suffering from any of the following conditions:

  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Drug withdrawal
  • Brain tumor
  • Hyperthyroidism
Try not to worry, though - the chances are, it's none of those things. You might just be very cold or hungry!
