This is Dr. David

I 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
I was 24 and my husband was 33 when he had him
We also have a 5 year old daughter and we are not relative either
He is on the seziure medicine
Pediatrician: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

what do you mean it is not doing anything?

he is not eating, pooping, peeing,

is he crawling?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
He is pooping and peeping but he is on tube feed now and so basically he is losing all his mile stones
Pediatrician: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

it sounds like he needs to see a pediatric neurologist and a pediatric genetics doctor for testing

to see if he has a genetic condition causing his regression

or a neurological condition possibly

I am glad you are at a bigger hospital.

but you are still not getting any answers?

have they done genetic testing for him?
