I am in search of help from anyone who may have a clue as to what has been going on with my 10 year old daughter. Up to 6 weeks ago she was a very happy girl who lived life to it's fullest. One night her and her older sister were playing when she had on her sisters PJ's. Her sister chased her into her room and tackled her on her bed. She bent her arm weird and hurt her arm. I waited till the next day to see if she was feeling better. NOPE she wasn't - I called the doctors, took her in and the did an X-ray. The arm wasn't broken so they sent me home with a splint and told me her arm would get better in a few days. By week end she wasn't doing any better in fact it was getting worse. Another X-ray with same result, next Monday took her into the doctors again. This time they put a splint on it and she was a bit more comfortable. That Thursday she went to see an Ortho who put a cast on and sent us home. Told us that it was a buckle fractor or growth plate injury.
That night is when it really all started - That night I have never had any of my chilren in so much pain. Her entire body would flinch with pain - she would cry out mommy make it stop. With being up all night and the next day it not getting any better, called the doctors, but in the area I live in they obviously don't work on Friday. I ended up in the ER with them cutting her cast off and putting a sugartong splint on it now. That night her arm starting twitching like I've never seen before. The entire arm would raise up the ace bandage. She was in more pain than ever - another trip to the ER - This time the doctor as she is having spasm's in her arm - tells me she seems to be doing fine - frustrated beyond frustration I head back home.
Within a few days her entire body starts to spasm. It will go sometimes for a few minutes, then there are other times that it will go hours at a time. She will ask me to make it stop. It's been 6 weeks now. She's had an EEG, blood work and nothing has resulted other than many sleepless nights.
PLEASE help me if anyone has any suggestions. I know this is long and wordy, but I've made it as short as I possibly can. Thank you and I welcome any suggestions.
