I want to know what kinds of ?'s my daughter should be asking her Dr. I'm in Ca,, and they are in Wi. Any and all info is greatly appreciated.. Thank you,, Mackenzie's Grandma!!!
How are you?
It is possible that the child is suffering from muscular dystrophy. Most of the muscular dystrophies are genetic and cause progressive muscle weakness.
Did the child show slowly progressing muscle weakness?
The diagnosis is based on muscle biopsy and DNA test. It is only after complete examination that a diagnosis can be made.
Please consult a pediatric neurologist at your earliest.
Did they ever findout what it was? Our two year old did that this morning. He was perfectly fine last night and when he woke up this morning he would walk a little bit and fall walk a little and fall and it is to the left side like his left leg is giving out or something. When sitting down he can't even left his left leg up not even the slightist and when he bends down to pick something up it's like he doesn't have enough strength to stand back up he ha to have help.
