Is essential tremor genetic?

Essential tremor is a neurological disorder which involves rhythmic shaking, most commonly in the hands, but it also could affect a patient’s head as well as their voice.

Essential tremor is genetic. It is autosomal dominant, which means if one of your relatives had it, a mom or dad, you have a 50 percent chance of inheriting it.
