My little girl is 5 months old. For several weeks now, she will start shaking, it lasts for 15-30+ seconds at a time. Sometimes it happens several tomes in a 30 minute period & other times it might disappear for a day or two. Yesterday she woke up with a nosebleed so her doctor told me he wanted to see her. When he looked at her nose, he said she probably cut it with her nails. I stupidly agreed but today, I noticed it was bloody still (dry this time) so I carefully cleaned it out & there is no scratch & you can tell it comes from way up in her nose where her nails cant reach. AKA it WAS a nose bleed. Her nose was a little bloody in the other side too. He also claims the shaking is probably normal. I don't see how shaking & nosebleeds can be normal for a 5 month old. Has anyone else ever had this happen? What was the outcome?Answer Question

No this never happened to us. It sounds odd to me. I would go to another Doctor in another practice/office ASAP for a second opinion. Do you have a very cold air conditioner? Do her arms & legs feel cold to the touch? Could she actually be cold? Could the air conditioner have dried out her sinuses? I don't know but it may be something to think about. But I would get a second opinion anyway. Hope she feel better soon.
