Patients with tremor are seen by a fellowship-trained movement disorders neurologist. A diagnosis is made after obtaining a complete medical history (including family history) and performing a thorough neurological evaluation. Tests may be ordered to determine if medical or lifestyle factors are contributing to the tremor.

Other tests may include:

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Blood tests
  • Urine tests
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Additional tests and screenings to rule out other conditions or disorders
