Thank you for your query,
With your child history of symptoms it is looking like a postinfectious or a postviral central nervous system complication as some times there may be demyelination changes occur in the brain after a preceding infection.
Consult a Pediatric neurologist along with your child and with reports for neurological examination and properr management.
Hope i have answered your query.
