Why is my toddler shaking

Toddler trembles uncontrollably


 

Hello Dr. Buses,

My son is almost 3.5 now. Half a year ago we saw him for the first time that his whole body was trembling uncontrollably. He couldn't do anything about it, but neither did he fall over or anything. He just looked at us helplessly. At that time we blamed it on his very troubled emotional state ... He had screamed several times that day in anger and frustration and was terribly upset.
Then I didn't notice any more tremors. Only the day before yesterday the kindergarten teacher told me that our son had screamed in anger and then started to tremble. That would fit in with the first incident.
However, this morning, everything was very calm and relaxed, there was another tremor attack. The little guy stood in front of me and made himself stiff and shivered briefly, then again and a third time. Overall it took maybe half a minute.
Do I have to worry and have an EEG done by the pediatrician because we are dealing with epilepsy here?
We would be very grateful for any advice!

Toddler trembles uncontrollably

Dear E.,
In fact, to be on the safe side, you should have that clarified with your pediatrician.
All the best!
