Thank you for your question.
In your age group there are two common types of tremor : essential tremor and physiological tremor. The first is very rear in a 20 yo without any family history. Physiological tremor may be exaggerated by multiple conditions: anxiety, thyroid disease, electrolyte imbalance, medications and so on. Based on your description you probably have an exaggerated physiological tremor. Propranolol is a good choice for this conditions. If you have significant anxiety than anxiety treatment my help for the tremor even more.
