Symptoms:  Head
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
The symptoms that you have stated of tremors in hand and wobbly head could be due to anxiety. Anxiety very frequently presents with such symptoms. Medicines such as clonazepam or propranolol will control the anxiety symptomatically and the proper cure of anxiety can be done with paroxetine or escitalopram. These medicines have to be taken for 5-6 months at-least.
You may meet your doctor and discuss this possibility and get the medicines prescribed.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

Wish you good health!
