The past few days my two year old grandson started clenching his fists and holding them on his chest. He cannot open his hands without assistance. The pediatrician said it could be a neurological twinge. What causes this and how is it treated?

I was unable to find any information about a twinge. I would encourage the parents to get a firm diagnosis and rule out any other issues.

Here is a link to the WebMD Brain & Nervous System Health Center: http://www.webmd.com/brain/neurological-disorders

You might find some additional information about clenching there.

I would ask ped or make sure and see a neurologist. We are in the process of doing an EEG now on our son that will be 3 in October because he twitches in his sleep alot!
