    LEFT side, NOT right . . so sorry about your daughter. If mine starts the rattle daytimes I have rode my bike around the farm getting bounced about. The one remedy I have found was a very rough ambo ride (ours dont seem to have shock absorbers), the drugs didnt work, the shaking about of "me" did. I dont have anyone to tickle me but it did cross my mind that maybe this would have worked too. Wishing her the best of luck - - Jay.

    Hey angelhark, just wondering, do you have anyone to hold you down and tickle you , need someone to experiment ? Because I am thinking that would be nicer for a kid, than dunking her in cold water . . .
