Twitching at Four Months of Age

I was wondering how normal it was for my 4 month old to be twitching in the neck and head.

She also makes a very weird face while she does it. Kind of cocks her head to the side and twitches.

The Expert, Ren Chats Answers

Twitching in 4 months old infant indicates seizures, especially when accompanied by grimacing and croaking sounds. The underlying cause for these abnormal movements can be determined only after full evaluation.

Immediate medical evaluation is indicated

Very often convulsions of infancy could be innocent, but serious causes need to be ruled out to prevent the delay in appropriate treatment.
