My daughter is 10-months old and had her first flu shot about a month ago. Since then, I have noticed that, at random times, she will shiver like she has chills or what we've always called "the willies". It doesn't seem to bother her, and there are really no symptoms that go along with this, other than she always seems to be tired when it occurs. Sometimes, she even does it two or three times in a row. The only thing I can think that causes this is the flu shot, although ever since she was born, she has been very shaky and trembly when she is upset. Her hands twitch and tremble when she is crying. I asked the pediatrician about it several times, and she just said that my daughter displays no signs of having a neurological problem or anything. Still, something doesn't seem right to me. The "chills" episodes seem to be increasing, and the only answers I seem to be getting from the Internet are "malaria", which worries me since we do have a lot of mosquitos & other biting insects here, and Sophie has woken up many a morning with little bites all over her. We live directly on a sand marsh, with many biting insects. I am worried. Does anybody have any suggestions about what may be causing this? Or has anybody experienced similar things in their infant?
