Q.

My 20 Month old baby started twitching in her sleep

She was very sleepy all day yesterday. Did not eat much. Had a slight fever. She got a small cut on her toes 3 days ago we did disinfect it and it's almost healed. She has no fever her body temperature is normal. Why is she twitching?

I am concerned about your little daughter being so drowsy and not wanting to eat. Also you mention that she is twitching. Even though she has no fever, it is important to make sure that she does not have an illness such as meningitis. It is essential that she is examined at your nearest paediatric emergency unit. Please take her immediately.
