Customer Question

Grandson 14 years old, never did drugs, very intelligent, all of a sudden his legs aren't working right nor his right arm, speech is sloppy too. Devos Childrens Hospital in Grand Rapids, looked him over and sent him home, Very incompetent Dr. insisted it must have been ingested even tho everything was negative. He's never done drugs! He told her that! Anyway she was convinced he'd be better in a week. He is getting worse. So very scared, he's walking with a walker and also his thinking process is showing a change please help. So scared, just love this great kid!

he needs more testing.

he needs an MRI scan of his brain to look for rare conditions in his brain which could affect his talking and speech.

does he have headaches or nausea.

he needs to go back to his doctors and say he is not getting better and demand a brain MRI scan.
