Good evening, thanks for the question
Muscle weakness in children needs special attention because it can indicate disorders in the central nerve. Muscle weakness in question needs to be confirmed by a doctor through a direct physical examination to be able to assess whether the symptoms in question are true indicating abnormalities or not. Muscle weakness in children needs to be excluded from the possibility of cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy or cerebral palsy is a disease that causes interference with body movement and coordination.
This condition is indeed in the course of the child will experience delays in terms of development in many ways, such as being late to sit or late talking, to interference with intelligence. In addition to general physical examination and innervation by a doctor, it is also necessary to do a supporting examination, for example blood tests, imaging, or electroencephalography. Handling in the future will depend on the final diagnosis from the results of previous examinations, can be in the form of drugs, physical therapy, to surgery.
That's all, hope you can help.
