Long story short, we brought our 5 y.o. to the hospital today for rapid eye rolling. Ped. thought it was brain swelling but neurologist said it's likely just a new manifestation of a nervous habit; ie. picking at his nails, scratching at eczema, tapping his fingers, etc.<br>
I'm curious if anyone else has experienced this?<br>
He said it happens frequently in active young boys and usually resolves itself by age 7.<br>
Also that it hasn't peaked yet and will likely get worse (frequent) before going away.<br><br>
Would love to hear of others going through this.<br>
