Hi can any1 help me(plz bear in mind he has been experiencing his difficulties b4 diagnosis of ONH),my 8 year old son has optic nerve hypoplasia(undeveloped nerve frm brain 2 eye) ONH can come with loads of other associated conditions,we are not sure at the moment if any of his difficulties are due to ONH, he is blind in 1 eye,he has severe allergies(antihistamines are not effective) he has loads of nose bleeds day & nite(no cause found),headaches,body cramps,stomach pains,stiffness causing him pain & discomfort any time of day especially on left side of body & his neck,fatigue,lethargy,unable to sit upright un assisted (theory they say its coz of the way his bones have grown without any test ??),plus toiletting problems day & night,he has great social difficulty,he gets so stressed till his nose pours with blood and he sweats till his clothes are soaked then he sometimes cannot remember anything or how he got into that state,he has sensory processing difficulties,he is on waiting list for full ASD assessment, So an mri of brain was done and ultra sound of bladder & kidneys,we haven't yet received the written report of US but radiologist said his BLADDER was THICKENED which shows he can only hold 5 table spoons of fluid but should be able to hold 25-30 tbl spoons before feeling the urge @ his age,& even after he goes toilet several times his bladder still does not empty (WHAT DOES THIS MEAN ?)... Now the MRI results of brain & orbits:- under developed optic nerve & high signal in T2.
