Why is the chin shaking?
Anyone is worried about the state of his body. When he notices any strange things, it can provoke fear for his own health. With this concern, people go to the doctor to help them figure out the problem. There are incomprehensible and not very well-known symptoms, and, as you know, we are afraid of what we do not know. One of these symptoms may be tremor. In this article, we will look at why the chin is shaken in infants and adults.
Why does a baby's chin shake?
Every parent will be concerned if something is wrong with his child. For example, if a chin is shaken in a newborn, it will naturally cause questions.
The reasons may be the following:
- If a child is born prematurely, that is, it has developed in the womb of the mother for less than 40 weeks, it is considered not to be a fully formed little man. The process of his growing up outside the mother is stressful, and he is very weak.Therefore, quite often in children born prematurely, such symptoms are observed. Nothing wrong with that. Very often this is manifested in children and disappears by three months.
- The state of hypertonus may be caused by tremor in a child. It is quite normal for children under one year. If your child is over a year old, and the chin, as well as, for example, the legs continue to shake, this can be a very serious symptom. You need to see a doctor.
In any case, children can enjoy a relaxing muscle massage, bath with lavender oil and the complete absence of stress.
Why shaking an adult's chin?
With older people all the more difficult. It often turns out that this is an approximation of Parkinson's disease and the like, as well as, possibly, irreversible degenerative organic diseases in the brain.
Causes of tremor in adults can be:
- Parkinson's disease and similar diseases, accompanied by parkinsonism symptoms.
- Physiological tremor.
- Organic pathologies (toxic, tumor, cerebellar lesions).
There are several types of tremor:
- Resting tremor (3.5 - 6 Hz).
- Postural tremor (6 - 12 Hz).
- Intentional (3 - 6 Hz) - damage to the brain stem and cerebellum.
- Rubral tremor.
- Psychogenic tremor.
Whatever your situation may be, do not under any circumstances self-medicate - at best you can remain disabled, at worst you can die without proper treatment! In tremor disease there are no such concepts as the treatment of homeopathy, fortunetellers and other fashionable and simple things.
Only under the supervision of a physician and medication can you overcome the disease, prevent its development or slow down for a while. If you have found tremor in adulthood or in adolescence in a child, contact your doctor immediately.
