My son was diagnosed at 3 1/2 years old with hyper-reflexia diplegia (not sure on that spelling) and extremly flat feet. MRI on brain and spine came back ok. Now at 5 years old the hyper-reflexia in his right leg has gotten worse and his right foot is now turning in towards his left leg, toes pointing to left leg. Speech is slighty slurred but understandable most of the time. Behavioral problems, poor balance and cordination. Twitches/Tremors daily in both legs. Moodswings, depression, feeling of invincablity, hard time controling anger.
He was born at 36 wks with low blood sugar, low body temp and jaundice. Jaudice cleared up at 6 wks and body temp began to balance out upon leaving the hospital. Hasn't had blood sugar tested since he was 2 years old. Tremors/twitches where noticed in left leg shorly after birth but no testing was done just told to wait it out.
Just wondering if anyone knows of anything that could cause these problems. Neurologist is just not sure at this point what could be the cause so they just keep making sure it isn't getting much worse, put him in physical therapy, order speeched therapy and councling.
