This behavior in your daughter might seem frightening to you but actually she is suffering from Breath holding spell.This is some psychological way of reacting to pain in 5%of the children in this age group.This problem disappears by the time child grows to max 5 yrs. But sometimes it is seen that in some kids it happens due to iron deficiency anemia.So meet your doc and get her CBC done,If she is anemic she may require iron medicines.
Bye.Take care.
