I have no idea why they do this.. I have been there but I aslo question them as to why they are saying two thing... okay she goes to OT have you thought about maybe going to shriners for a 2nd opinion.. it can't hurt.. bring all of your daughter's medical records with you and any type of imaging with you.
I hope you can gets somewhere with the doctos

CHANGE doctors!!!  It is your right. If they are not answering your questions or making proper referrals then go somewhere else.

Doctors are so scared of being sued they rarely ever completely state what is wrong or how treatments will work, ect. My daughter is 4 and has 7 specialist doctors we see monthly (thankfully we see four of them at the same time) and its very frustrating to hear this is wrong or maybe its that...or this might work, it might not; it might get better, it might not; ect.

My daughter is epileptic and has neurogenic bladder and bowel disorder and nos they're thinking Mitochondrial Disorder, but they "cant be certain" and itz very upsetting.

I'd say get a second opinion if you can. I know its not always easy (her one doctor is the ONLY specialist in all of Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania), but if you can I'd say do it so at least you'll see if others agree with the current treatment and diagnosis.
