Hello! I am new here - just signed up today. I wanted to get some opinions on my 8-year-old sons behavior before freaking out and running to the doctor. He has just started (this week) doing some slight head shaking. Nothing extreme, just slight shaking back and forth, kind of like a twitch. I asked him about it - asked if he was doing it on purpose (in which case, ok, no big deal. I'll ignore it) or if he didn't know he was doing it. He says he doesn't know he is doing it. I'm not sure whether or not to believe him. He has a history of fibbing (ok... straight out lying!), and he may be embarrassed by it. Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? Thanks!!
