Seizure Disorder?: You didn't mention the child's age, sex, type of shaking or jerking, duration, status of consciousness, color change, frothing in mouth, urinary incontinence etc. The child needs full medical evaluation; if epilepsy is a probability, eeg to be done and a pediatric neurology referral is needed. Contact your child's pediatrician.
