hi there. have just found this site and joined. my grand daughter who is 18 months is not walking yet. the health visitor has told my daughter she thinks she has hypermobility. my daughter rang the doctor to make an appointment for her to see a specialist but the earliest one was mid august. as for her symptoms when she is sitting with her legs outstretched her left foot drops. also when my daughter holds her arms and walks she walks on the right foot and drags the left one. she also drags her left foot in the walker. she can also turn her feet inwards and put them behind her head. we then decided it might be better to go private as she would be seen quicker although just for a consultation for now. just wanted to know if anybody has had a child who had similar problems and what did they do. also waiting the four months for the nhs specialist would this make us loose four months of anything that we should be doing now. also only being 18 months old she will not be able to be told to do exercises herself but is there something my daughter could do with her legs on a daily basis. anybody with any answers would be most appreciated.
