In brief: Need for EEG

She could be developing seizures.
I would take her to a pediatric neurologist, especially with a previous history of CMV she may need an eeg.

In brief: Dear

Dear sir or madam, i'm sorry to hear the dificult time you are going through with your daughter, i know is not easy managing or seing any suffering from a child.
Clear saliva is not usually indicative of seizure, the white color is caracteristic of a zeisure. Oral problems araising from cytomegalovirus are not a concern at the present time, although a visit to a pediadric dentist will always be to her benefit, in order to maintain good oral heath . Patients with CMV have a tendency to develop problems associated with litle ulcers and will need to be controlled. Best wishes and good luck.

A rapid moving jaw in children could be associated with a muscle spasam, cramping or chills.
The excessive clear saliva indicates that the salivary glands are reacting to the movement. Restraining to stop movement is recommended.
