10 yr. old shaking

i noticed in august that when ever my son was sitting down watching television or riding in a car he was shaking his hands and head. now he seems to be moving his jaw and sometime banging his teeth together. he is aware of it, and can stop it. what is going on? something not right. i have made an appointment with his pedetrician, but it's in 2weeks and im very worried.

any information would be greatly appreciated

Hi this may seem silly, but is he maybe cold? cause when I am cold, sometimes your teeth can chatter, and kids can over acentuate that.

Just a thought.

Re: 10 yr. old shaking

Sounds like it could be a mild form of tourettes or just tics.
