    Default Help on trying to find out if my son has something wrong


    Hi,



    I need some help trying to figure out if something is wrong with my 8

    yr old son. So if those of you who have or know someone with some

    type of emotional or behavioral type of problem could you please tell

    me what the symptoms, characteristics, emotional physical traits

    would be. And what it is they have.



    I will also send a list of what is going on with him to try to

    explain what is going on. But I want to sit down with my husband and

    compile as must info as possible but right now I am stress my baby

    brother is getting married in less than month nothing is going right

    and my family is throwing, running the wedding, making the food etc.

    on none existent funds. Plus I have 5 young children ages 5, 6, 8,

    10 & 11.



    We had asked the doctor many yrs ago if something was wrong and she

    said no he was probably just a highly emotional child but did no test

    or looked any further than my question. When he was young he use to

    hit himself in the head or bang his head on the wall or floor. The

    doctor said it was nothing just his way of expressing himself.



    Like I said above I will write some more once I clear my head and try

    to organize my thoughts.



    But to other people who don't know him they think it is just another

    bratty misbehaving child.





    Thank You

    Christine

    Default Help on trying to find out if my son has something wrong


    My son is 16 and has been diagnosed with ADHD/ODD. I knew when he was little about the Adhd. He could not get through Barney without doing 50 million things. He also has recently been diagnosed with ODD. Opositional Defiant Diasorder. This is more complcated. since he is very moody and off the wall. Swears every word, fidgety. I can go on and on. You can do a search on line if you have an idea of what is going on. Then some sites have check lists. I would fill it out and bring it to the pediatrician,. At that point they should direct you to where ever you need to be seen for a correct diagnosis. i worked for health insurance and Dr. office before I left to be a SAHM. If you need anything please ask. i will wait until you post the symptoms that you are seeing. Hope this sort of helped. Dee

    Default Help on trying to find out if my son has something wrong


    <div style="font-family:garamond,new york,times,serif;font-size:14pt;"><div style="font-family: garamond,new york,times,serif;font-size: 14pt;">My son David is 9 and he still does bang his head from time to time when he's really upset. I have had him tested for ADD and he's been to counseling. They have all said there was nothing wrong with him other than needing a different outlet for anger. I have vivid memories of doing the same thing when I was young. My dh thought is a cutter and has been since high school. That is more serious and that's why I still recommend getting to a doc to find out for sure. I thought had even gone so far as to bite the back of my hands and pull hair out occasionally, not enough to cause problems though or even break the skin. I would take your son to a doctor to rule anything out like I did mine just to be on the safe
    side. David even went so far as to break a window with his head about a week or so ago. It scared all of us and I'll admit I tore his rear end up once I learned he was ok, then I held him and cried. Not my best moment, but it really scared the crap out of me. He had not even a scratch and the window is toast he was so lucky it didn't shatter only one small piece fell out while the huge shards stayed put. We taped it up until his Dad could remove it. I know with David having his Dad come off the road (he was trucking and stayed away from home up to 2 months at a time) has helped him. The difference is amazing. I know with me it was I didn't feel like I had a voice with my parents at all, nor did I feel like I had any control whatsoever in my own life. For David it was missing his Dad, for me it was the lack of control, for your son it may be something else. It's obvious though that something is
    bothering him. Talk to him and connect with him while you play games or take a walk something that doesn't scream "parents being nosy" see if you can see what's getting to him. I know it helped with David even before his Dad came home. We did things so he wouldn't miss him so much all the time and he felt connected to him. Anyway, I hope this helps.

    My younger cousin (who is highly intelligent) used to bang his head on the floor while playing and screaming his head off. Turns out he has an allergy to mayonnaise! He was about 5 or so when after much testing it was determined. He used to eat a sandwich for lunch every day. The sandwiches were cheese & mayo on white bread. As we all know mayo is made of mostly egg! He had also been fed tons of mayo rich side foods for his short (at the time) life span. Ricky was diagnosed that year with: allergy to eggs and ADHD. He would bang his head because he had a headache and no verbal skill to say what he was feeling. He started it at around age 6 months and it was not diagnosed until age 5.

    Good luck in your search,

    Jacqui

    Default Help on trying to find out if my son has something wrong



    Christine, he is the middle child! Has something happened w/ him at school or home? Has his mood or grades changed? Have you noticed any changes in his bowel habits?
    Can you arrange some one on one time w/ him? Let him know that he is special! loved!!cared for!!
    My son is adopted,small for his age,smart,leadership +, but he has bullies pick on him for the last 2-3 years!!We did everything-counseling for the last 4 years,counseling at school,taking snacks,pencils to the bullies until my son decided to fight back-Then the school took on another roll w/him-It was horrible.I removed him from public school and put him into a private christine school (only 57 kids from kindergarden to 12 grades) It is not perfect but my son is not perfect either.But I fight for him when I think that he is right. He has spent 9 weeks in the private school.
    Today on summer vacation he again thanks me for changing schools. He was complaining of headaches,stomach aches,chest pains.
    Where can a child go for help if he can't get help from home?????????????????

    What is your son's behavior like in other settings besides home? at

    school for example, or playing at a friend's house, or out in public

    (grocery store, etc.) How does he spend his spare time at home? What

    is his academic level? What does the teacher say, if you have shared

    these concerns?

    Hi,





    Sorry it took me so long to get back to everyone but my plate has been increasingly full besides my own 5 kids ages 5, 6, 8, 10 & 11I have been helping out family members by minding their kids here and there for a couple of days at a time over night ages 11mths, 15mths, 30mths & 4 yrs. And my baby brother is getting married this Sunday.





    Well here is the list that I can think of @ the moment


    1. very emotional


    2. gets upset very easy


    3. talks very loud (most of the time)


    4. highly excitable


    5. always on the go (sometimes has trouble sitting still)


    6. alot of time we need to repeat what we say


    7. needs to be touching someone most times (very clingy at times)


    8. needs to be reassured, always needing a hug, kiss, hold hands or to say I Love You even if it is many times with in a few minutes


    9.gets very whinny & moody @ times


    10. has been getting short tempered & angry easier with siblings


    11. to someone who doesn't know him it looks like a bratty kid throwing a tantrum and we think it is more than that. He is a very bright, (cooperative and helpful boy usually)


    12. he does not sleep through the night he will wake up early morning and come in our room and sleep on the floor next to my side of the bed


    13. he sweats horribly at times during the day (worse than all the other kids) and while he sleeps he is soaked in sweat.


    14. when he was a baby he wasn't much into being touched


    15. when he was about 5 or 6 when he was upset he would either hit himself or bang his head on the floor or wall





    Any input, ideas & suggestions would be greatly appreciated


    Thank YouVery Much


    Best Wishes

    It sounds like a mild form of autism to me. I could be way off base. I've only cared for a few children with autism. But this would fit them to a T.

    I agree most of it applies to my son, altho I don&#39;t know about the heavy sweating. That could be something else as I hadn&#39;t heard of that with Autism before. And to this day he&#39;s 23, I have to remind him over and over out in public to not talk loud. Altho I wasn&#39;t sure if it was a autism thing or not. Not being around very many other kids with it and I hadn&#39;t read up on any new findings in several years but when I did I don&#39;t think either one was talked about. Of course I may just be getting very forgetful too. lol

    Hi,

    I need some help trying to figure out if something is wrong with my 8
    yr old son. So if those of you who have or know someone with some
    type of emotional or behavioral type of problem could you please tell

    me what the symptoms, characteristics, emotional physical traits
    would be. And what it is they have.

    I will also send a list of what is going on with him to try to
    explain what is going on. But I want to sit down with my husband and

    compile as much info as possible but right now I am stressed my baby
    brother is getting married in less than amonth nothing is going right
    and my family is throwing, running the wedding, making the food etc.

    on none existent funds. Plus I have 5 young children ages 5, 6, 8,
    10 & 11.

    We had asked the doctor many yrs ago if something was wrong and she
    said no he was probably just a highly emotional child but did no test

    or looked any further than my question. When he was young he use to
    hit himself in the head or bang his head on the wall or floor. The
    doctor said it was nothing just his way of expressing himself.

    Like I said above I will write some more once I clear my head and try

    to organize my thoughts.

    But to other people who don&#39;t know him they think it is just another
    bratty misbehaving child.

    Thank You

    One of the things you mentioned was that your son banged his head against things when he was 5 or 6. Does he continue to do that? Was it a phase? Repetitive motions are usual in autistic kids. Another very big one is language problems.

    Many of your observations also fall into the ADD/ADHD categories.

    Is this child adopted or been transferred in early childhood between

    parents/caretakers? It could also be RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder). A

    good therapist, neurologist, psychiatrist who specializes in children could

    diagnose for you. A primary physician might be good but do not rely on

    his/her opinion without a specialist. Prayers to you!

    It sounds like a mild form of autism to me. I could be way off base. I've

    only cared for a few children with autism.

    Default Help on trying to find out if my son has something wrong



    True ADD or ADHD is a neuorlogical / chemical condition. It is not learned. My son was born ADHD. He did not go to Day Care and he showed symtoms well before kindergarten. Unfortunately many normal children are wrongly diagnosed as ADD or ADHD. Normal kids with short attention spans and high energy levels are often labeled because they don't conform to the class room system.
    A teacher is not qualified to diagnos ADD/ ADHD. A Pediatrician or family MD is not qaulified to diagnos ADD/ADHD. A true diagnosis requires a team evaluation. My son was examined by a psychiatrist, psychologist, and a neorologist. They gave him a complete psychological evaluation. He was observed on several occaisions. Sometimes he had no idea that the Dr's were watching through two way mirror walls. He also had complete cat scans and other neurological test. After several weeks and abrief trial with meds he was diagnosed.
    Three years later we were required to repeat the evaluation process with a different team of Drs. The second team reached the same joint conclusion.
    If a child has been properly evaluated on several occaisions, under different conditions by a team of specialist then accept the diagnosis. If a MD watched behavior for a few minutes and then wrote an RX, ( which often happens) then you are on the medical treadmill where they just throw a pill at everything.
    Because so many kids are wrongly diagnoses and put on meds, many people think that there are no legitimit cases. That is just plain wrong. There are true cases of ADD / ADHD and medicine ( even Ritalin) does help them. For us Ritalin was like a miracle from God.
