    Hand Tremors? Please Help Me Identify What This Is!

    I am 17 years old and I developed a hand tremor in my right hand a few months ago that only occurred once in a while, usually when I was holding something (a glass of water, my pencil when doing homework, a fork when eating dinner).

    LOSE OF STRENGTH IN LEGS

    I unfortunately had a heavy object hit me in the head. I have always been an active person lifting weights and running. After the incident I have lost lots of strength in my legs and I also have not been able to run anymore because of imbalance and head pain.

    muscle twitch

I don't know if this has to do with my problem but....
