Hi @grazer and welcome.

Tremors can be a symptom of MS, there’s some detail here :-

However, given your present predicament, going through diagnosis, it could well be anxiety.

Although it’s easier said than done, try and relax and let the medical professionals complete their diagnosis. Then, if MS is confirmed, you can then discuss condition management and potential treatments. 😉

Following on from @stumbler, I find it hard logically to believe that anxiety can cause these very real symptoms, but it’s true. I’ve no idea of what goes on neurologically when it happens but I compare it to getting butterflies in the stomach. You get them when you’re nervous and once they’re there you can’t control them in any way. All you can do is remove the cause! … pretty difficult when you’re going through diagnosis! The other thing to remember is that MS symptoms can come and go anyway, so don’t imagine that this feeling will be with you for ever! Be kind to yourself. xx
