Detailed Answer:
Hi vijayanandnunna,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist, here to answer your query.

The symptoms which you have mentioned-head, neck and tongue twisting to right along with shivering in right hand, appears to be seizure like activity. I would suggest that a video EEG should be done in this regard to confirm the same.Depending on the same, seizure medicines dose can be adjusted.

Hope that helps.If you have further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.
