hand and leg Shaking and tremors , 5 year old

Initially my 5 year old daughter started showing signs of hand and leg shaking when he hold any objects or walk on the floor,now she has stopped walking these days, Ii looks like as if she don't have any strength in leg and hands.
Also she develop some black  rashes during the same period which are improving now.

Her hands don't shake at rest.She is in a very conscious state and understand and reply everything, nothing has been diagnosed in MRI ,cat scan,EEG done was normal.

We have not  seen and major shaking when she is in US , it get worst only when she visit India, this is the second time we are seeing this happening in last 2 years.

foll are the tests done when it happend last year and all results were normal:

alfa fetoprotien
plasma ammonia
plasma lactate
all lipid profile
Eosinophil count
S amino acid
Urine amoni acid
S zinc
S coppor
skin biopsy
Aanti nuclear antibody

She has been started with valparoic acid last year for few days.

Not sure what is causing the problem , nothing has been identified in any test so far....any help/suggestion in this regard will be appreciated...
