my baby (4 and a half years ) has had what seems to be muscular spasms ever since she was born at first she used to just outstretch her arms and curl her fingers around but with an expression of anxiousness, it seemed as if she had some sort of chemical trigger but we were told by the doctor and health visitor that these were common in children (so common i cant find anything relating to them yet), and she would grow out of it ......How-ever as time goes by i have been more and more distressed by what has now developed into a frequently recurring spasmodic reaction ...to what or why i dont know but i do know it is triggered .. it happens when we go into the car i watch her in the mirror and shes twitching now she grips her hands together in what seems to be an effort to combat or at least suppress the occurrence, it also happens when she anticipates something usually the vistit to the park or meeting people or at times when she has to wait and is conscious of her surroundings they seem to occur on an almost daily basis in little bout of three or four times of perhaps three or four seconds each ..sometimes i count around twenty times a day when im off work (9-5) i spend all my time with her and although i can sometimes calm her down with a mental diversion it is getting to be very distressing for me knowing she is conscious of it
i know it not something she will grow out of within the foreseeable and i am constantly worrying about her at school i have asked the teachers to watch and record the frequency so i might convince the nurse to inquire some more and i have decided i am now going to pursue as many avenues as possible until i know what it is and what is causing it ....i have no medical knowledge or training but i do know this is not something that will just "go away" if you have information or can help explain please respond .
