Shakes - like nervousness (not nervous though), not seizure

Hi,

I've been diagnosed with epilepsy for about 28 years and I've had the 'shakes' for years. When I say shakes, I'm referring to holding your hand out palm down and seeing shakes - like nervousness. Except I have it all the time. Sometimes mild and sometimes stronger (but not enought to call them 'tremors'). Sometimes if I try holding a camera, I have to revert to a tripod because I cannot keep the camera steady no matter how hard I try with my bare hands.

I was wondering if that was just my 'unique' make up or if that was something other people with epilepsy also experience.

FYI: My seizures are controlled, so I don't have seizures - but I would if I wasn't medicated.
