I have a 6 year old girl who was otherwise feeling well but have an involuntary movement of her tongue for last 2 days, which she says she can not control. The only history is that she had throat pain 2 weeks ago with runny and blocked nose which has improved. She also had drooling of saliva last night. Temprature is 36.3 and Eating and drinking normally. no rash. no joint pain. Takes sytron for iron defficency. What could be the reason for her symptoms?

Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. Dr. Yogindra

If she has also got dark coated tongue, the iron supplement may be responsible for tongue protrusion. Drool during night sleep may be normal symptom only indicating deep sleep. Please stop or give iron only every 3-4 days and see.

Good luck.
