My 27 mo. old daughter has been seen by many doctors for her abnormal MRI, weight loss, loss of motor development, (she cannot walk) truncal ataxia, inflammatory granulomatous lesions in her muscle, (finding in muscle biposy) hypotonia, fatigability, aspiration, dizziness with motion, nystagmus, muscle weakness, a repetitive kicking motion of her left leg, (mostly affecting the foot) and hair loss of the sides of her head close to her ears. Does anyone have any idea where these symptoms come from or anyone who has had anything close to this?

Does anyone have any idea where these symptoms come from or anyone who has had anything close to this? Have the doctors ever done a vitamin check on her? B12 deficiency is a possibility. How is your health? It is a familal condition. The levels should not be lower than 550. Anything lower is dangerous. Dont let any doc tell you different. I speak from experience. There is a thread on this website "B12 deficiency is commonly misdiagnosed" Go to todays posts and you will see it. Go to last page of thread as the 1st part is outdated. Read backwards for a while. There will be a link for newbies on ther site on someones post. Read up. Could be it! I have B12 deficiency and my hubby is low, also my kids need it too. Its a widespread problem that docs dont acknowledge. I was very sick before I diagnosed myself! Call doctor tomorrow and ask for script. Dont take no for an answer and dont delay. It is very treatable. If it is positive low, go to thread suggested and ask questions. All there are willing to help.
