welp It's back. toddler with a brain tumor?
« on: April 10, 2014, 09:10:16 PM »
About a year ( last June ) ago my son suddenly became clumsy. He kept tripping over his his own feet falling over etc. It went away on its own after a week so.... Well it's happening again. He has been tripping over his own feet for the past few days... He's 3. I heard that when they are going through growth spurts they get clumsy. Did. Anyone have this experience with their toddler?

It's amazing to me how seeing him trip a few times can make me think he has a brain tumor... I've had hypochondria for him since I found out I was pregnant with him, and the fear I have when worrying about his health is nothing like I had when I worried about my self. It's 100x worse.

I have 2 little ones. My oldest was def clutzy, still kinda is. She could trip and fall and any moment. Might be just a phase, doesn't sound worriesome. If it still seems like an issue make an appt. with the pediatrician, but I don't think you need to worry.

I'm 39 and I still trip over my own two feet.  I was a frequent flier in the ER needing stitches and X-rays from being so accident prone.  When kids grow, it takes their brains time to adjust to the height difference.

My nephew falls all of the time. They're not perfect at keeping their balance up.

Think horse - not zebra. Maybe he has fluid in his ears? Or, maybe he's just your average clumsy toddler!

Little kids fall alllllll the time.  Probably just an awkward stage.  You can ask a pediatrician for peace of mind but a brain tumor in a kid his age is very rare. 

Also, I should point out that when I was a toddler, a very solicitous mother on the playground came up to my mom, pointed at me as I clumsily attempted to work a riding toy, and asked "What's wrong with her?"   :laugh3:  Some kids just aren't very coordinated.  Some outgrow it.  (I did not!  Oh well!)

I think they get clumsy at that age, trying to go too FAST.
