Is It Normal For My Baby To Twitch In His Sleep
When my baby gets tired she twitches her head to the left. Sometimes she seems like it bothers her. Is this normal? She also twitches in her sleep.
Not normal: Need to address this issue with your pediatrician and if possible go for neurologist referral.
Dreams: She is likely just dreaming, causing her to twitch which is the most common cause of twitching like this. I know you're probably worried if she's having seizures or something more serious like that. There's an entity called Infantile Spasms but she doesn't quite fit the criteria for that either. If she starts truly flexing her upper body, at the next or waist, take her to her pediatriianSee 2 more doctor answers
Probably benign: Most normal people have had "sleep starts", a sudden jerk of the body, when falling asleep, or when aroused. This is worse when sleep deprived. Repeated movements of the legs is periodic leg movements of sleep, a variation of restless legs syndrome. This can make the legs and feet twitch hundreds of times in the night; it can be easily treated by prescription medication.
Sleep twitching: Twitching, or myoclonus, can happen to many people during sleep -- it's not necessarily a feature of pms. Usually the twitches are most intense just as you're dropping off to sleep, but they can occur at other times also. Some drugs can make it worse; if really bothersome it can be a subtle sign of certain neurological problems. If concerned, see your physician and maybe also get a sleep study.See 1 more doctor answer
My 6 y old had some very mild twitching last night while sleeping. It was typically just a finger at a time, and just once at a time, but occurring several times over an hour or so. Normal activity?
Normal: Probably normal if the kiddo is otherwise healthy. You probably do the same thing as do most of us.See 1 more doctor answer
