When I was young, 16 and just starting to work with my elders in the plumbing business, I used to watch and study the teachers of the trade and how to do things.
Since I started out as a pipe and fitting go getter, pipe cleaner and pipe cutter, I watched those who taught me this great trade and what it is all about.
I used to see that in the older workers that their hands would shake when working. This used to bother me because at the time I could use my hands with much finesse and be steady in all ways.
Not no more. My hands have been starting to shake more and more as I use them and it's becoming embarrassing. I catch myself sliding my hands into motion before holding them in a way where it is more noticeable.
Was just curious if anyone else with their age increase if they happen to see this as a problem or nuisance. This has been extremely gradual and when I see others with this problem, I see it instantly and know what it's like, unfortunately.
I would say from a medical point of view that it's the slow degradation or breakdown of the nerve endings in my hands that's causing this.
Plumbing is hard on the hands, drain cleaning is especially when dealing with the smaller cables.
