Hi... I have been trying to find a solution or a diagnosis to why she stiffens with excitement or whatever excites her. He body is always pretty stiff not the usual loose kid. I have 3 other children and when held the are soft or flabby...hope it makes sense. She on the other hand is stiff and again when excited does some awkward facial features and stiffens up with her body. She has over the many years done it so much that she is quite muscular and of course quite on the thin side. If woken in the middle of the night shakes a bit...very much asleep and then stops and continues sleeping...She has eye contact, and is very artistic and had a pretty good vocab and speaks well,,,. Does anyone have any input or advice I have mentioned it to the Doctor and not much feedback...I have an appt with the neurologist soon...but would like to know if anyone thinks I should see someone else...thanksView Thread
