I have a 17 year old special needs son who has been experiencing 17-18 days of normal behavior, then as if a switch has been flipped, he has 9-10 days of extremely aggressive behavior, including attacking me and others, sad crying spells and fits. He is healthy and has always been a sweet child, but this cycle is so bad that I may have to put him in a group home simply because I am going to get hurt. I have taken him to the doctor, he has had a MRI, xrays of bowels, upper and lower gi xrays etc. and they all come back normal. I am wondering if he could be bi polar? or if you have any other suggestions as to why he is cycling like this.
Thanks so much
