Today was Wallace’s follow up with the physiatrist we saw back in September. Absolutely nothing was done during this appointment. He refuses to look into causes of the low muscle tone and lack of reflexes. He refuses to refer us to someone who will. (He was totally affable so don’t get a horrible image in your mind.) I fear being too adamant with doctors due to the history I have with them reporting me to CPS when I come for help. I left feeling like it was the equivalent of beating my head against a brick wall.
I’m not done. I don’t give up. I will go back to the family doctor we saw once and get her to help us come up with answers. We didn’t get to go to the neurologist we waited so long to see because it was the same day I was supposed to be in Chicago for court that got canceled. Maybe I should get us back on the wait list for that.
For reference, here is a link about hypotonia. Note that it is a symptom and NOT a diagnosis. There has to be a cause and this list would be a good place to start ruling thing out (some I know aren’t it). The trace minerals helped but it seems clear to me that it isn’t the only piece of this puzzle. I will be doing a trace mineral update soon since we are on a break at the moment.
