My five year old boy constantly scrunches shoulders and rolls neck. This is happening almost very minute and several times per minute when he is running.

He is not in huge pain but can't stop himself doing this. What is causing this? It is a serious worry.

This problem has been getting worse over the last month. He has also started sniffing constantly though does not have a cold or any excess mucus. The doctor today said his ears and throat are fine and gave us some antihistamines to stop his sniffing.

He has slight scoliosis in his back but we have been unable to monitor this condition for the last two years due to hospital administration errors and cancelled appointments.
