Children Aged 5 Years Suddenly Weak, Unable To Sit, Trembling, Cramps And Late Talking?
Hello, I want it. My niece used to be 3 years old, but it looks normal to be able to walk and run, just can’t speak when I talk, but I can Dad. Then the child is left alone toys in front of the house, suddenly crying may be because of falling and shaking his legs could not stand much less especially road. So after some time the child can crawl and be strong sitting but not shaking. now at the age of 5th the condition seems to be worse, if you sit alone always fall like a baby who can’t sit alone, unable to refute the head, unable to crawl and shaking, if fed with old food it seems difficult to swallow. I have had seizures every day until 5x, after the doctor’s examination and given the medicine for seizures now, the seizures have never been resolved, but the body is still strong and shaking. After the x-ray photos, there were no problems, the speech therapy had not yet progressed, the latter was only an EEG test, but the results had not come out, but I had not seen the doctor again. all I ask 1. Is it true that my niece has cerebral palsy? 2. Is this because it fell on 3 years or was there from the beginning because it was seen late speaking? 3. Can it be cured and my niece can be normal like other children? Please answer, sorry if the explanation is too long, and thank you …
Thank you for the question.
Sudden weakness, unable to sit, trembling, spasms, being late to talk, and difficulty swallowing in children can occur due to various reasons, for example:
Congenital defects, including cerebral palsy, mental retardation
Head or spinal injury
Infection of the brain or spinal cord (meningitis, encephalitis)
Brain tumors or spinal cord, as well as tumors in other organs that press on the brain and spinal cord
Other, for example metabolic disorders, disorders of immunity, disorders of blood vessels in the brain or spinal cord, hormonal disorders, and so on
Without checking your nephew's condition directly, of course it is not our authority to ascertain the exact condition that underlies his complaint, is it purely related to the injury he experienced a few years ago, or is there another factor. The doctor or pediatrician who examines it directly is the most aware of this, based on the examinations that have been done, including physical, laboratory, x-ray, CT scan, MRI, brain record, and so on. Therefore, you should consult directly with him, yes. Depending on the cause, this condition may later be cured, maybe not. However, without intending to downplay your expectations, even though they can be cured, it seems very difficult to be sure that your niece can grow and develop normally like other children her age.
Hope this helps ...
