Suffering Son

Posted , 2 users are following.

I would just like to know what is wrong with my Son. My son started having a breathing problem when he was fifteen. He would Hyperventilate from the time he would wake up until the time he would pass out around 2:00 every morning. He was in school doing great, Bowling, Art Awards and very happy. I started taking him to different Dr's and he was medicated over and over with Dopamine Blockers and Psychotrophic drugs. That he never needed. He became hospitalized three times due to the reactions. The Dr's were not listening to us. They wanted to medicate him more with higher does. He became wheelchair bound and bed ridden. He list fifty pounds in four months. Hid arms started to shake violently and he was vomiting. It has been four years now, I found a Dr. Who took him off the drugs and told u no more drugs. Now he started having awful Enrenaline surges. To where he would shake so bad and couldn't calm down. He would become soak and wet. New Dr. Did testing on Adrenaline Glands no tumors. He had gained his weight back over time, but nowhere lost it all again. He tries to blow his nose and his head shakes. He complains about hid Arms constantly. They want to tense. He now tries to swallow over and over hard with his head shaking. I don't know what is wrong with him. He was completely healthy. Very intelligent even ready to take pre- college classes at Fidteen. Now he does nothing but try to get through his days. Does anyone have a clue to what could be wrong with him. I am reaching out for help for my nice son. Thank you.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your response. I am going to ask his primary Dr. About the test you mentioned Saturday. I don't know if they tested for those or not. Seems to take for ever to get anywhere with this. One Dr. Mentioned stress. Which just doesn't seem applicable given he had not had any stressful situations, and this just came on and he lost twenty pounds. Did your son sweat to where his clothes were wet including his hair drenched?

      Thank you,

      Kim

      I will find out, I assumed with the Blood test these would be checked. He has an appointment tomorrow. Thank you for the input. I sill do not know why he sweated as bad as he did. It was like he was having a convulsion. He just had Brain MRI, and came back normal. I would just like some answers, so very frustrating.
