Hello-havent posted for ages but still try to read the site...bit snowed under as usual but hey ho...
I have a daughter with a diagnosis of autism. I was treated with goserelin, when I fell pregnant with her and remained unaware of my pregnancy until i was at least 16 weeks. Her due dates at initial scan and subsequent scans varied by a month so her bone growth was variable.
She has learning delay, she is overweight, on her body - but her limbs are quite slender, she has 'knock knees' she has constant pains in her body and complains of a 'needle' in her throat. She has eczema, is shortsighted and though she reads fluently she cannot interact well socially. She has sleep problems. She is 9 with evidence of pubertal onset since age 7.
Does anyone else know of any information regarding this? I also have Graves, which wasnt dx until 2009; she was born in 2003. I have a boy, underweight and highly strung, with night sweats, joint pains and they have hypermobility syndrome. (I visited my GP and asked for them to be tested for antibodies but was told I was merely trying to 'blag a diagnosis'...?)
The community paediatrician told me my girl was 'perfectly normal' despite all the problems she's had help with from Occupational therapy etc, so she's not particularly helpful either....
We are currently under the endo - via the com paed who referred her not on anything I had to say (evident from her 'perfectly normal comment) but on the request from the school nurse.
Any pointers with this growing nightmare would be a huge help and received with gratitude.
My eldest age 15 also has autoimmune issues which have never been diagnosed either. He is also diagnosed with autism but I have come to doubt this diagnosis as he's very atypical.
