a new symptom emerges: ongoing study of hypochondria in a four year-old

Lola is crying in the kitchen. I go in and ask what is happening, and she won't tell me. Her father explains: "Sometimes Lola is running, and she stops running. It's not because she's tired. Her legs just stop running. It's bothering her."

Ever ready to go on stage, Lola bends one leg repeatedly and then holds still to demonstrate how her legs just stop.

I'm not a doctor, but it could be a case of epizootica.

I hate it when that happens!
Most of the time, my legs just stop when I am headed to the gym..and they stop right as I am ready to get into the car to go.
We have the same disease!
