My son is 12, has severe obstructive sleep apnea, next week 6th surgery to correct, he has learning disabilities, seizures, large tall body pre puberty wears size 16men's shoe, large hands, head, etc. Has undiagnosed benign tumor tissue growing in esophagus. Have been tested for several genetic conditions, negative for pten gene, ext. Do not know what is wrong. He is a happy boy and just wants to be normal. He also wears a bi-level cpap machine every night since 3 years old and still wets the bed only when in deep sleep. He is growing very rapidly and always been above 100 percent height and weight since 3 months old, but not at birth, seemed completely normal. help?:confused:

  • Just read the info there. If you want to read more and talk to others with B12 deficiency, stay on this site, and type in above "B12 deficiency commonly misdiagnosed". Ask questions there. Just a suggestion, and something to test. If not you can cross this off your list. Good lucktamsulosin in mg phentrimine on line buy phenamax herbal phentermine sarafem
