I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I've seen my patient's "freak" in that manner when intensely fearful but Coco's head shaking as if convulsing isn't consistent with such freaking. Instead, it can represent idiopathic (unknown cause) head tremors or, instead, a form of complex partial seizure (also called psychomotor seizure) which is defined as abnormal focal or asymmetric sensory or motor activity affecting any part of the body and which may be associated with autonomic signs such as salivation, vomiting, or defecation and is associated with a change in mentation (mental status) and/or behavioral abnormalities.

Please give me an update on Coco and please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
