Dr. diagnosed as "Shuddering". No medicine. Says it will go away.
Has been occurring when she was 4 years old beginning in Feb 2015. She is now 5.
Symptoms occur multiple times during a day.
She does not lose consciousness
It does not appear painful, although her breathing appears to be affected. It sounds like butterflies in her stomach however it affects her whole body.
No other issues we are aware of. Have had allergy tests, had a pulmonologist look at her as well. My wife thinks it is like "paresthesia" or is as close as we can match with the symptoms.
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years ago

Thank you for the input.

Shuddering attack is a benign condition sometimes found in early childhood.

As she was examined by different specialists, did not find any other abnormality, you should not worry.

It will subside by its own.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating.

Wish her healthy life.

Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
