Q.

Shaking

My child is shaking very lightly, it''s not noticable though, I''ve notice it while he was eating that his spoon is shaking. I''ve also noticed it while he was holding a glass that he was shaking. He doesn''t feel any pain. He is almost 7 years and he can''t explain why is he shaking. He is allergic to dust, mould and the grass but I don''t know whether this could be the results of allergies. I need advise or help for him before it''s too late.

This is a very good question.The most common cause of this kind of shaking or tremors may be a medicine which he is taking. Is he on any treatment for asthma? Several asthma medicines may cause this kind of shaking. Please let me know what medicines your son is using.
