Why is she shaking like this...

Once again...my daughter has started to do this weird shaking thing, while nursing. And of course, I left my video camera across the room. :/
This is the 3rd time in a week it has happened, while nursing.. She starts shaking her head so bad she can hardly suck... And it looks like she is just shivering like crazy, more than a jerking shake.

Is there a reason why it would be happening while nursing?? I talked to her doctor, they have seen her, and found nothing. She has no fever, she's had some tests done. I'm calling again in the morning.

Have you had a follow up with a neuro yet?  I have read some of your posts in Babies, it sounds like she needs more extensive testing than EEG, and you need a  pediatric  neurologist to check her over really well.  The aggravating thing about most neuro issues is that they are hard to diagnose unless the patient is having a symptom/episode right then and there, but they should be able to at least check over her brain, brain stem, spinal cord etc.

Just her head, and her hands were too last time. Mainly her head..

Are you familiar with myoclonus? Myoclonic jerks or shaking are normal, occurring in adults while sleeping and in babies when nursing and/or sleeping. An easy way to tell if it is seizure related is this.. does it stop if baby is seated up or woken? A seizure would continue, myoclonic shaking would cease.
