Some of my 11 yr. old symptoms: tantrums; self-injurious behavior; aggression towards people, animals and any object in his way; cognitively impaired; short in stature; problems falling and staying asleep; EXCESSIVE energy; makes sound effects; hand-flapping, recent x-ray of growth plates resulting in what doctors says shows a greater than 2 years difference; recent cat scan showing somewhat underdeveloped gland in brain; height is changed very little in 4 years and and has lost weight though height has barely changed, etc. etc.!!!!!! We are exhausted. The doctors don't listen. Schools say he is just cognitively impaired. He has even been diagnosed as autistic. Allergy tests have been done and glutens tested-all great. Behavior can only be described as jekyll and hyde. Please, does anyone have any information that may help us? Even doctors say with the medication that he has tried over the years, there should be some positive effects, even if autistic. We feel like the doctors are missing something, something rare or even something simple that has been missed. Please, any information!! Everyday he is getting older and still no answer.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
