Hand tremor from cycling?

Is it possible or common to get hand tremor from riding? I swapped out handlebars recently, and though I don't notice pain while riding, I'm getting a muscle tremor in my hands even days after riding. The muscles in my palms also feel "tense" along with the tremor.

Does anyone else get this? This is a new thing for me.

I've heard it referred to as "handlebar palsy."

You could try raising handle bar height of course to remove weight from you hands, if the tremmor remains, then IMO, a trip to the Doc would be in order.

The ad at the top of the page is for Parkinson's. That causes a palsy.

Could be any number of things...the trip to the doc would not be a bad thing. I have nerve damage in both elbows (Ulnar Nerve) and Carpal Tunnel in both hands/wrists. There would be days (before I stopped riding a DF) that my hands would start with a tremor and then just go into full numbness to the point I could not pull the brake lever even a little bit. See the doc and get a referral to a qualified Sports Orthopedist/Hand Specialist pronto to be on the safe side.
