My son too did a similar thing when he was about 10 months old. After he did it several times I was frantic and called the pediatrician. I had captured a little bit of what I had been seeing with my camera (short video). The dr. wanted to see him right away. She couldn't see anything but said what I was describing COULD possible be seizures and recommended that I see a pediatric neurologist and to take him for an EEG. I took my son and the dr. pretty much laughed at me. My son was very advanced with his mobility skills (standing up, putting shapes in containers, opening and closing things, having control of his fingers, ect.). She explained that there was nothing wrong with my son. At that age, babies get frustrated because they can't express themselves. In time I found this to be true. I guess you could say he outgrew it.
A friend of a friend also had a similar experience with her then 11 month old son. It turned out he had bad allergies (environmental).
Either way, it never hurts to contact your pediatrician. Mine trusted that I knew something was off even though she didn't see anything out of the ordinary.
