I have a 10 yr. old son and we have noticed him shaking his head. We don't know if it is a bad habit or if we need to get him checked out. He has been doing this for a couple of years. He was for awhile shaking his hands even while he was in the middle of his soccer games. We have also noticed he has started blinking his eyes alot. It seems like his muscles don't relax. I was watching him while he was watching a movie and he can't hardly just relax is facial muscles/head. He does not notice it but some kids are starting to notice it. What advice would you give us? Should we take him to a neourologist? What do you think it could be and what causes this.
