Paediatrician

It is really essential that your daughter is correctly diagnosed. It is surprising that she has not had an EEG yet as she may have a form of epilepsy. It is essential that your daughter is seen by a paediatrician as soon as possible so that she can be properly examined and treated if this is necessary.
