Hi, I'm online now and would be happy to help you with your question.I understand what you are asking. Just reply and we'll get started. Dr. Tom
Good morning. Thank you for allowing me to help you with your question. First, I'd like to say that I'm sorry and that I know how frustrating it can be when the child develops something out of the ordinary. Given that you have had two appropriate examinations, and based on the symptoms which you describe, my suggestion would be that you arrange an appointment for your son with a pediatric neurologist. There are many conditions associated with motor tics and blepharospasm ( the frequent blinking and squeezing of the eyelids). Some of these conditions are associated with certain psychological diagnoses. A pediatric neurologist will be very helpful in both determining the cause and establishing a medical treatment plan. I hope this has helped and has answered your specific question. Please let me know if there is anything further I can do for you.
Yes, I agree. You are correct that some of the neurological conditions are serious. But the good news is that most of these have management protocols that have been established over time. That is why it is very important that your son be evaluated by a pediatric neurologist to establish a baseline. And to answer your specific question, yes, most of these conditions "can be treated are dealt with. You are doing the correct and appropriate search for information, which will help you in your questioning of the pediatric neurologist, but please don't jump to any specific conclusions based on information you find during your Internet searches. Based on his age and other activities, I have a hunch that you will find a very straightforward diagnosis and management plan. Please me know how things work out.
