Hi,

This is probably a functional disorder, that is from causes like anxiety/panic attacks. Kindly consult a psychiatrist. He may refer you to a child psychologist also. The condition will respond well to treatment. Nothing to worry.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
