Lost Strength in the Hands

Another common symptom of hand tremors is weakness. This symptom can make everyday tasks more challenging for those with hand tremors, for example, weakness of the hands can impact a person's ability to open door handles or food jars.

A person with a hand tremor may experience weakness in the affected hand or arm.
