Tremors in JRT's front legs

My JRT is 2 years old. Occasionally he has front leg tremors. He often stares at his legs when this happens and starts biting up and down his leg. Can anybody suggest a diagnosis?

Tremors in JRT NEW

Have you heard of White Shaker dog syndrome. It usually starts at ages 1 or 2 and it gets worse under stress or excitement but doesn't usually interfere with day to day activities. It's common in small white dogs. There has been some success with steroid - I would talk to your vet about that.
