My Baby Shakes....

Hey everyone, I just wanted to know if any of you have ever seen or heard of anything like this.

My daughter shakes for a few seconds sparatically. It coud be at any time of day, and she will all of a sudden shake(only her upper body). A while back, when i noticed her doing it, i thought it was on purpose. Until last saturday she did it like 5 times within the same hour. It was clear she wasnt doing it on purpose, her muscles in her arms were tight, and the look on her face...she looked scared or like she wanted it to stop. Sometimes she looks around, sometimes she stares. I took her to the emergency room and they couldnt do a catscan because she had ate within the last 8 hours. So now she has an appt to see a Peds Neurologist to find out whats going on.  Please let me know if any of you have ever heard of this before. Thanx!

My baby does this too. It used to scare me so bad! Are you sure she's not just peeing? I think that's why Pailey does it. Good luck, I doubt anything is wrong with her. Please let me know what you find out, now I feel a little nervous.

it sounds like she's having minor seizures. I haven't ever heard of any other reasons why a child would do that other then that. But it's good that your taking her to a neurologist. Good luck with it all

At the emergency room the doctor kept asking me if she was peeing...but im sure she wasnt because she is doing good with potty training and she was wearing panties all day that day until i got her dressed to go to the ER. So if she would have been peeing it would have been very noticeable...

I'm no doctor but it seems like your baby could be having seizures. Especially if her muscles are tight and she looks scared. She shouldn't be shaking just becasue she's peeing!!! I hope all is well, good luck.

my baby would shake when he was born and it was  because he had low blood sugar...i think i forgot.
