I just recently found out that I have a little sister who is nine years old and was born with hypotonia and seizures. She basically can not move other than tightening her muscles or straightening her legs. I was told that she is nonverbal, has degenerative brain matter, can smile on occassion and is basically on an infant level. My father told me that she has been to all the top specialists and they have run tests on her at every major center in the US, yet they still cannot find a diagnosis. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be?
