am at a constant battle with myself as a mother because my gut tells me that something is not right and that there is something I can do to give my daughter a higher quality life but doctor can't seem to nail it....
She is 4.5 years old and her biggest issue is that her feet and hands continue to go "wrinkly" (that is her explanation, i am assuming they are falling asleep she just doesn't have the words and I want her to use her words so i don't correct her!) There does not seem to be a pattern for when it happens, it happens both sitting and standing. She also cant walk up 2 flights of stairs without ending up whining and crying that her legs are tired, or play the Wii (video game) with out complaining her arms are tired after only 10 minutes. We played soccer in the summer and she cried almost every game, and i think it was out of frustration as she may of felt physically tired or sore. Same thing with riding a bike, however skating has been going well this year, she lasts 45 minutes on skates.
a bit of history...
her dad is some sort of North american indian but i am unsure of what as her was adopted.
she battles anemia as an infant, and this should be re checked is what i am thinking now.
she is extremely far sighted and wears glasses to correct.
she has battled constipation issues, and is a very nervous anxious child, and since we have worked on that her constipation issues have disappeared completely. She takes a L-theanine supplement for calmness. She also has had (what i thought were) several yeast infections, which her pediatrician says is not yeast and that someone her age cant get a yeast infection.
I recently had her B12 checked and her levels were 423. Fromresearch i think she should have her methylmolonic acid and homocysteine levels tested but her pediatrician says anything above 133 is normal...
i worry that i should just let it go and let her be a kid and let the doctors help someone else, i feel like i am being a pain in someones butt....what would you do or what am i or t he doctors missing????
