hi,hoping someone on here may be able to give me a few pointers cos im at the end of my tether. i have 3 children the eldest of whom has autism,severe epilepsy,bilateral deafness and learning difficulties,but its my middle one im worried about. ive always had a gut feeling that something is wrong with my son but could never quite put my finger on it. a couple of months ago he collapsed at school,was out cold for nearly 2 mins,wet himself then whn he came round he was grey in colour and confused for 10 to 15 mins. took him to hospital they said he'd fainted(i disagree) had ct scan and eeg and both came back clear. he has severe eczema and has been assessed for neurofibromatosis also has slight weakness and unco-ordination on left side. neurologist has just told me my son has adhd but my instinct tells me its more,or aspergers as well as i went through all this with my daughter 12 years ago. please help if you have any advise. do i go with the drs or trust my instincts.
