This is Dr. DavidI am sorry your son is not developing like you had hoped for?how is he regressing? how old are you or your wife when they had him?is he now on anti-seizure medications?have they checked for autism? he might need more time to develop for his symptoms to be more clear to help with diagnosis.

He is not doing anything they did I mri and it showed nothing
So now we are in a bigger hospital so we can get any answers
