I have twins aged 14 months. Recently my wife observed that one of them while sitting on her lap was having a kind of seizure / facial spasm (I'm not sure how to explain it): His mouth was open for a while, kind of frozen with no other activity. Has both hands applied some strength.
We checked with doctor. He told us to try and take a video next time this happens. This again happened twice after this, first after a gap of maybe about a month and second after 1-2 weeks. But we were not able to record this as we were not prepared. We spoke to Doctor again who asked:
- Was biting his teeth? - No
- Was he conscious? - Yes
He told us this might be a behavioral disorder and may be an attention grabbing technique. Another possibility was Calcium deficiency which he was not suspecting. Basically he asked us not to worry but to record it next time.
I am yet to see this myself but yesterday while he was playing with Lego blocks, while trying to connect two blocks I observed that he was putting some effort. His hands were close to his chest and he was trembling a bit.
Any idea what this might be? This may be a bit dumb question, but how can I be prepared to record this if it happens again? There is a camera kept at the room where they spent most of the time. All knows how to record it.
