My two year old has slight hand tremors. He also sometimes shakes badly when he wakes up or is scared. We have been to an endicronologist and he does not have any thyroid issue. We have been to a neurologist and he had an MRI of his brain which was fine and he had a test for seizures which was fine. We do not know where to turn. Does anyone know what type of specialist to go to?

  • My 2 year old daughter has had the same problem. Her pediatrician said that due to nerve development, tremors were sometimes a problem in young children. He recommended seeing a neurologist if it got worse or if it was still present at 3 years old. Sometimes the tremors seem to be related to low blood sugar, especially if she's just woken up in the morning or after a nap if she didn't have lunch first. Usually a small glass of orange juice gets the tremors to stop.

  • Thanks! Any ideas why a two year old would have low blood sugar?
