could you help me my son has had an unexplained bowel problem since he was 2 years his colon was imflamed and an enlarged rectum due to a blockage this seemed strange to me as i am a vegitarian and very concious of nutritional food ie no frozen or pre packed foods etc. He has now been diagnosed as having a global delay his speach is approx 10 months behind and he has problems with his fine motor skills he also has mild social interaction problems could these be signs of regressive autism ?Do you recognise any of these symptoms as mmr vaccination problems my son seemed to be developing normally untill 2 years he had his first mmr jab at 2years
I guess I would talk more to the Dr. My big sis has 3 kiddos and 2 of them are in special ed, one is a fully functioning autisitic, he will be 5 next week, her second little one, a girl, has autistic spectrum something. I know, bad aunt that I am, but they finally got help for her son when he was 2 and not talking at all. He is still a little tough to understand, but has made leaps and bounds. He does have interaction problems as does her daughter who is 3 & 1/2. The little guy was just a year back in November, not a talker...he will be going in for tests since he is at high risk. Kinda scary, but they the kids were different before they were 2, both of them were developmentally way behind at the time. The third one was walking by 1 yr, so we are hoping he's just not a talker, but seems to be fine in his motor skills. I would follow your gut if you feel something is wrong and request tests. They didn't get a diagnosis for my nephew till he was 4 and even then took a long time to get there. Not a solid diagnosis on my neice yet either. I hope you can find some answers. I do know in all of this they are not finding any correlation with the shots.
