Paediatrician

It is difficult for me to be completely sure about your baby's problem without being able to see her. It is essential that she be carefully examined and tested especially by having a test called an EEG as well as having special blood tests to be sure that she does not have epilepsy or another reason for her shaking episodes. She should be seen by a paediatrician.
