Hello Bunga, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Previously I would like to ask a few things first:
Does your child appear to have seizures and a decrease in consciousness? Seizures do not always have to be twitch seizures, they can also be rigid seizures. In stiff seizures, children appear to experience sudden and uncontrollable stiffness in all their muscles. Stiff spasms throughout the body will also usually be accompanied by a decrease in consciousness during or after the seizure.
Does your child have other symptoms such as walking problems, developmental problems, growth problems, trembling in the hands or feet, difficulty controlling hand or foot movements, involuntary movements of the hands, feet or head?
Does your child experience problems in interacting with you, for example until now they cannot talk to you, don't look at you, or other communication problems?
If you answered no to all of the questions above, then chances are that what your child is doing is just normal behavior for toddlers. Toddlers often do things that cannot be understood the reason, including feeling anxious about everything. As long as your child does not experience certain disturbances because of this behavior, there is nothing for you to worry about.
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then you should immediately bring your child to the Pediatrician for further evaluation and treatment. Doctors can perform certain tests such as blood tests, CT scans or MRI to see if there are abnormalities in the brain, EEG (electroencephalogram), EMG (electromyogram), or other tests.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
