My daughter is 4 years old she is currently waiting for diagnosis for autism. She has these body tremors that last a few seconds but she does know she is doing it it has got worse as she's getting older she finds it hard to adjust to everyday life if there was to be a change. routine is the key.
Any advice please

Hi Destineerowe1

Welcome to NeuroTalk :).

My partner is a psychologist who has worked with children on the Autism Spectrum Disorder range. Her comment is that it is unusual for tremor to be associated with ASD.

She also suggested that getting your daughter checked out by a neurologist who knows about tremor is a good plan.

All the best.

Hi Destineerowe1,

I suffer from Tremors but I do have Lupus and overlapping diseases which can be the cause besides PN nerve damage which is another issue besides epilepsy and like Kiwi33 suggested a neuro is the way to start first but these can also be the cause with your daughter being so young, anxiety besides thyroid trouble but seeing a neuro is the best one to start, as tremors are caused by so many issues :)

I always get tremors when I've been looking at bright lights and screens. Generally any senses seem amplified and overwhelm me.

ectjour, If tremors appear only when using screens and looking at bright lights and aren't associated with panic or anxiety, then I would suggest investigation by a knowledgeable professional.

Seizures sometimes can look like tremors. Not all people who have Autism have Epilepsy, but it's actually not uncommon. There are also other conditions that combine Autism and Epilepsy.

Thanks. They gave me an EEG at hospital and tried to investigate my sensitivity but couldn't find anything wrong.
