Customer Question
from Shands medical centrr in...
A little background. We are presently awaiting to here back from Shands medical centrr in Gainesville. But thought i could pick a brain here as well while we are waiting.
My son woke up 11/17 and lost feeling from his buttcheek down on right side. We went to er, they did a ct scan and xray, everything normal, nothing out of place. We went to his PCP, he was now ablr to feel up to his knee, but not from knee down. Doc tested his reflexes and they were fine, he just said to give it some time and take steroids he proscribed for a week. Week later no change, he does have random episodes where it will come back for a few minutes then "fade" away, as he calls it.
After a family outing he all of a sudden could feel his entire leg agaib, we took him to arnold palmer children's er, they admittance him abd done an MRI and blood work. Everything shows normal. We wete referred to a neurologist the next day. We went there, she did her tests and those were normal as well. So with this info our PCP has referred us to Shands in Gainesville.
We are trying a chiropractor in the interim, but nothing has changed. He still cannot feel (no numbness, he says it feels like it was just gone/removed), and his boughts of feeling are still random, when they do come he has full function of it. I do have some video clips if interested as well.

His symptoms could be due to panic attack. If his neurologist doesn't find anything, he should see a child psychiatrist.

He saw one while at the docs. He is having no issues, plays outside, plays his games and interacts just like a normal teen. These are not occurong in episodes. 99% of time for the past 1.5 months he has a dead leg, having to relyon crutches and a wheelchair to be mobile. Even went on a trip to Seaworld, nothing change.

No numbness or tingling, just as if it was amputated and not ever there.

Since his tests are normal and his symptoms come & go, it seems to be due to psychological problem. He should see a child psychiatrist if the neurologist doesn't find anything abnormal.
