POST 2126 Shaking Son

Hi Paed,

My son isn't on any medication at the moment, he is a pretty healty child, almost never sick.

The shaking started when he was about 2 years old.

What could cause this?

Paediatrician

There are many possible causes from a thyroid problem to a neurological condition. I do not want to alarm you with a list of possibilities. Please see a paediatrician or paediatric neurologist as soon as you can.
