Welcome to NeuroTalk.
It sounds to me like stress related body tremors. They are somewhat common to the mTBI (mild Traumatic Brain Injury) community. I get them in my hands when I am under stress and need to use my hands.
I also tend to get them in a jerking format when I try to go to sleep. I take Neurontin (gabapentin), an adjunct anti-seizure med and it helps. I also started taking Turmeric supplements (circumin) a few months ago and even the break through tremors have stopped.
There are some foods to avoid. Caffeine, MSG, artificial sweeteners (aspartame, Equal, Nutrasweet, Splenda, sucralose) are excitotoxins that cause nerve cells to misfire. B-12 and folic acid help protect nerve cells.
What is your diet like? If you keep a journal of your food intake, you will likely find a link to foods that help and foods that make it worse.
My best to you.

58 years old, retired due to disability, married 33 years, father of three, grandfather of four, Suffered a serious concussion at 10 years old (1965) stopped most driving after last concussion at 46 years old (2001), Post Concussion Syndrome/Multiple Concussion/Impact Syndrome with PTSD, immediate and short term visual and auditory memory problems, slowed processing speed, visual and auditory processing difficulties, insomnia, absence seizures, OCD, 14 concussions since first concussion at 8 years old, Taking paroxetine for 14 years and gabapentin for 12 years. Added L-Tryptophan and successfully stopped all paroxetine after 3 months of tapering down. I currently take 500 mgs of L-Tryptophan when I wake up, 500 mgs after breakfast with my vitamin regimen and 500 mgs late in the evening.
As of Nov 15th, Due to high stress issues resulting in PTSD, my docs put me on three meds. Clonazepam (Klonopin, a dreaded benzo but only for 30 days ) .125 mgs twice daily (Doc prescribed .25 mgs twice daily but half a tablet is doing good) , citalopram (Celexa), an SSRI , and olanzapine (Zyprexa), an atypical anti-psychotic before bed. I have lost over 30 pounds since mid July. The olanzapine is supposed to help me gain some of it back but it has just stopped the weight loss. They took me off the gabapentin. I am feeling better than I have in years.
I am also taking L-Theanine to help with GABA regulation
