Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic.

The symptoms you quote doesn't fit into any know clinical or organic disorder. Keeping in mind the age and gender of the kid, I feel you should consider hyperventilation and other conversion reaction like symptoms. But I reiterate the fact that this is a diagnosis of exclusion after ruling out all other physical diagnoses.

I am considering this diagnosis as the symptoms you quote do not fit perfectly into any known clinical syndrome. I suggest you see your pediatrician or clinical psychologist.

Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.
