loss of gag reflex
My son had a near fatal car accident in 2000. He is recovering from serious brain damage. Recently we have discovered he has lost his gag reflex. He has been on lots of meds for many years and just need to know what could cause him to lose this reflex?

Hi....I am so sorry ur DS is dealing with these issues...

the only thing I can offer since I am not a dr or a medical professional, is that brain damage can cause a loss of gag reflex....

May I ask, when was the last MRI ur DS  has had?...depending on the type of injury, a syrinx can form.......

But compression of the brain stem can cause this issue.

My best for ur DS's recovery,
