Question:

My sister has a slight tremor in the head. She also makes a humming noise which she is not aware of.I`m really worried that this could be the signs of something serious. She shows no signs of dementia and leads a normal life and is very active in the home and outside. What could be? She is 66 years old and in good health.

Answer:

The head tremor is most likely essential tremor. Have a neurologist examine her to confirm.
