DS - 34 months, has been doing this strange eye flickering/twitching which is most noticeable while he is watch tv. Basically he just moves his eyes to the side and blinks. It is not frequent, but whilst watching tv, maybe every 5-10 secs. He also rubs his eyes sometimes after he does this.
I will make an appointment with the GP tomorrow, but was wondering in advance if anyone has experienced this before and what it could mean?
Googling seems to be worrying me - as possible reasons could range from epilepsy to tourettes .........
Probably not because he does it at other times as well i.e. when not watching tv - so sitting at the dinner table and will roll his eyes to the side and then blink. There is almost a rhythmic/involuntary pattern to it, as it happens with a systematic pause if that makes any sense.
Will be going to the GP tomorrow morning, so lets see what he says.
