my Now 8 month old beautiful DD has been "shuddering" regularly since birth maybe? (8 or more times a day) It is just like the cold "chill" shudder or "someone walking over your grave" etc

at 12 weeks i took her to CYH, and they made me get a referral from the gp to see a paediatrician.

She had her appt a month ago, and they scheduled an E.E.G, which she had this week.

She shuddered around 1 minute AFTER the E.E.G which sucks, as they didn't any on the E.E.G.

Now we have to wait for results... which may not come up EVEN IF there is something wrong, as it didn't happen during the E.E.G. time.

Other than the frequent shuddering she is very bright. Sits, crawls, pulls up, cruises etc..

i am so so so worried, and hoping someone else can put my mind at ease.

i feel i also need to say

-she doesn't lose conciousness

-doesn't fall over if she is sitting etc

Thanks.

This may sound silly but do the shudders happen when she is urinating by any chance?  (TMI here), sometimes when my kids urinate they give a bit of a shudder.  This may tie in to what the PP said about the kidneys.

Hope it gets sorted out for you though and it is nothing serious, it doesn't sound like she is unwell so that is a good sign x

Take her for a second opinion- it can't hurt.

I hope you get an answer OP.

But with all due respect, if your treatin medical team can't give you answers with a directed history, physical examination and various investigations, no one on the Internet should really pass comment or attempt to give you reassurance either.

My DS used to shudder on and off most days when he was younger. I thought it was around the same time as when he did a wee. Hasn't done it for ages - he is 2. Had his kidneys scanned at out 6 months as paed at slep school thought could be kidney reflux. There was nothing wrong and he has grown out of it.
Hope that helps.

DS still does this every now and then, it used to be alot more often. I just assumed it was his silent reflux (did it more often again for a week or so after he went off reflux meds about a month ago), as he would often "gulp" too. When it first started, I thought it might be something like infantile seizures, but after watching a video changed my mind. The doctor said that babies nervous systems are immature, and they do lots of odd things at times, but to keep an eye on it and we would look into it further if it got worse/didn't go away.

Hopefully it is nothing serious OP.

Hi. My DD started shivering a couple of days after her birth. I would ask the nurses to take her temperature as I was worried she was sick. Her temp kept coming back fine. They didn't seem to take it seriously until one of them saw her shiver. They then took her off to have some tests and it was discovered she had very low calcium levels among other things. This affects the muscles which causes spasms. They began her on a calcium supplement and it soon settled. Maybe you could ask if she could have her calcium levels tested if nothing else shows up.

I think my DP still does this when asleep. His legs in particular shudder for a moment but he seems fine.  Might not be the  same thing as your little DD though.  

Hope she is OK .

Do you take anti-depressants, OP?  My DS2 shuddered every so often in reaction to the seratonin he got through me.  He stopped about 3mo.
