Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Please don't leave me wondering cause I'm scared and nervous I really feel something may be wrong
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 4 months ago

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for her symptoms.
I understand your concern.
Muscle twitch is often benign.
Benign twitch can be due to electrolyte, calcium and vitamin deficiency.
Anxiety, stress, excess caffeine can also cause it.
Muscle fatigue can have a role.
As she is tensed there can be anxiety state.
Though neurological disorder can be a cause but it is usually associated with loss of sensation, weakness, wasting etc.

Please do not worry.
However, I would advise to get an examination by his doctor.
Please give her plenty of fresh fruits & vegetables, fluid to correct any deficiency of electrolytes, minerals.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
