Shaking head no in sleep
Hi there. I am hoping someone can give me an answer as to the possible cause of Katie shaking her head "no" in her sleep. She used to do it while awake and her pedi said it's no big deal as long as she is awake but she has started doing it in her sleep along with neck posturing. The GI said to try to stop her and let them know what happens. I know that the neck posturing is a result of the reflux but I asked if the shaking of the head could be something she responded with "possibly" and they want to retest her blood count because it is indicating an infection. Does anyone have any experience with something like this?

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Hi. Sebastian does this, too, and I have not figured out for the life of me what it is. I think it is because he has fluid in his ears - he has had it for months and if it is still there in august, they want to explore treatment options (tubes, etc). Apaprnetly, it feels to him like we feel when we can't pop our ears on an airplane or when we have water in our ears. Probably wouldn't hurt to take Katie to an ENT....

Thanks! Glad to know that there is someone else who experiences this. With them wanting to redo her blood work and her cryptic answer it sent me to the internet and seizures and menigitus (spelling) came up; don't think it is menigitus or seizures but sometimes a little bit of information is a bad thing!
