this has been progressing for at least a year or more. He is 7 now.
He's been constantly moving his hands and legs; he can't just sit still.
His bends his wrists, put one knee over the other (when he sits). He doesn't stand still or straight for a long time. It's like he constantly has to move his body, elbows, back....Like a slinky. I don't know how to describe it. When he stands, he usually has one knee lower (bent). Or he has to stand next to a wall or something that he can hold on for support.
Since he was a baby he had several symptoms; very sensitive hearing, scared of people, odd boy out in groups, very sensitive emotionally. But he is also very smart and funny. He gets bored easy and he also gets frustrated if something is too hard. He also like to repeat thing several times, make strange sounds, especially high pitch bird sounds....
As far as phisical symptoms; he has dark cirles under his eyes since he was very young. He also is pale in appearance (unless he is tanned). You can see tiny veins on some parts of his body (it's like they are very close to skin surface).
He had some vaccines up till age 4, and then no more. Up till he was about 3-4, his stomack was pretty pooched and he had a lot of flatulence; diarhhea and constipation. I gave him a parasite cleanse then, and those symptoms were gone.
I didn't know much about nutrition and alternative health when he was born; I was on paxil for several months of my pregnancy (at the end). I did breastfed him, but only for 7 months. I later fed him some soy milk for a while (didn't know any better)...
Anyway, he usually has smelly stools, anxiety, bad dreams. I am pretty certain I suffer from candida and other issues, and he may have candida as well...
After age 4, he was pretty healthy, didn't get sick almost ever. But in the past year or so, he got sick almost every month; stomack problems, colds, etc...And the last difficult thing was bacterial pnemonia, which was pretty scary for all of us.
He hasn't relapsed, thank God, pnemonia took place in May.
What do you think he has, and how can I help him?
one of the pediators suggested that he may have torrette tick (that was about 1.5 years ago).
