Essential tremor is a nervous system (neurological) disorder that causes involuntary and rhythmic shaking. It can affect almost any part of your body, but the trembling occurs most often in the hands — especially when you do simple tasks, such as drinking from a glass or putting a key into a lock.
Watch the Colleen O’Neill-Mullins Story of living with essential tremors. Colleen worked in the fashion industry throughout her successful career. She talks about recent ground-breaking treatment that has given back her confidence and ability to keep a steady hand in day-to-day tasks. Today she lives in Melbourne with her husband Reg, and volunteers at Epworth Hospital in Richmond, Victoria.
