Could be some electric disturbance in her brain. She needs to be checked out to rule out serious conditions. A fit is normally non fatal and looks scarier than it is but it helps if the cause behind it is discovered.

Please contact your doctor. It sounds as though your little girl is having seizures of some type and the only way to determine the cause is to have her examined immediately. Please do not put it off...I'd love to hear what you found out and how your little girl is doing.

Please make an appointment for your child to see the doctor. What you are describing might be seizures and you need to find out for sure if that is the issue and, if so, what is causing it. Even if it is not seizures, medical diagnosis is definitely warranted. Please take your child to the pediatrician. (I'm an R.N.)

It could be febrile seizures which in and of themselves are not dangerous, but they are usually caused by infection and fever, both of which need to be investigated. There's an underlying cause that could be simple, but it may not be, so the best advice is to seek medical treatment.

She needs to be evaluated for possible seizures and other things would need to be check out as well. Make an appt for with a doctor as soon as you can...

There is definitely something wrong with her that requires medical care. She probably needs to be on some kind of medication.
