My daughter was always active. She climbed trees & ran around on her hands & feet because she was either a lion or a horse. I always thought it was odd that she had muscle aches as a child. One main thing that tipped me off was that she never had the stamina that other chilren had, she would run around but sleep for 2 days after having 'too much fun'. I feel she may have had this since she was 8 or earlier, thinking back. I would try to tell doctors this but no one would listen until now. In Nov I had a doc tell me that's how teenagers act. I couldn't get across to him that she was like this as a child also. Thank God for a diagnosis. She seems so happy now, I think it's because people will "believe" her, now that she has a name for it. Sad but true huh? I hope you find answers for your son.
As far as a career goes for her, she wants to be a cosmetolgist. She is so good at giving massages also, very strong hands. She knows what she needs & can do that for other people. She's a very sweet person who is strong & knows what she believes & wants in life. She is a problem solver & looks at things differently. She knows how to block out the teenage girl drama with friends. She's a very special person. She will succeed. All the school trouble is just a bump in the road!
Thanks to everyone for your care & input.
