When i was pregnant with my son in 2005 I was on Zoloft, My son was born C Section because I did not Dialate, he was in the birth canal for about 16 hours, when he came out he had a huge Cone head and it did not go away for a couple of weeks, His head was tilted to the side and he had a tight neck and they said it was due to a big Uteran fibroid I had and he did not have alot of room in there, I wanted to make sure everything was ok so they sent me to a pediatric Neurologist and he checked him and reassured he was fine, he went to physical Therapy for a couple of months to stretch his neck and after that it went back to normal. Today he is 7 and his head still sticks out a little in the back but looks ok, he had regular check ups and everything according to his pediatrician was fine. My question is I wonder if he has Craniosynostis? He is super smart does well in school. He has always had some OCD Tendencies and lately a little worse so we are seeing a behavioral Therapist. I guess I just want reasurance, My husband thinks we have nothing to worry about but I dont know. I asked this to a Neurologist earlier just wondering if Pediatrics have a differnt take or has had any experience with this
