DD2 has paed appt tomorrow. She's been seen a few times over the last 2 years for ongoing non-specific abdo pain and nausea (constant, all the time) without any medical cause. she has had loads of blood tests and an endoscopy. we tried GF diet for a while which mad a bit of difference but not a huge one.
Anyway - long story short- she also has loads of other issues, lots of weird behaviour stuff. is rather obsessive, volatile, takes things utterly literally, among other stuff.
I am almost convinced she has aspergers. she fits quite a lot of aspergers 'symptoms'.
Do I tell the Dr tomorrow this is what I think is the problem? How? would it make any difference to her?
I've been putting off accepting this for about 8 years now (DD is 11). Should I do anything about it?
i would mention it to the peadiatrician. she may have aspergers but she may also have something else (or she may not have anything). if she has had blood tests in the past they may be able to rule certain conditions out straight away!
the paediatrician may refer her to a psychologist or occupational therapist for further assessments.
behaviour,at home,at school emotions health early development schoolwork/academic performance social skills/problems
also which professionals[HV,GP,teachers] have told you of difficulties,if any
think about what you think the main problems are that she is having/you are concerned about
just as an aside,a serious condition like crohns disease can present like this,so always keep an open mind as even endoscopy can be normal depending on which partof the bowel is affected.Is her weight normal?
