I have a friend who had a brain shunt a year ago and recently this august has been having either seizures or tremors and mostly with the hands not legs and mostly like shaking tremors and felt better after eating candy wondering if it's tremors or seizures and they stop and just start up again and no convulsions or anything mostly shakes.

If the tremors are getting better after eating candy, then its most likely due to hypoglycemia. Ask your friend to get checked for fbs and ppbs. Also consult the surgeon who performed the brain shunt surgery.
