Conditions with symptom: 'dislocated joints'
hi, i am 13 and since i was born i have never been able to turn my wrists over, palm upwards. it really affects me and i wish it could get sorted by surgery or other. i think it has something to do with bones or joints, but i am too embarresed to speak to my parents or docters about it.
i read and seen the article on ddh my daughter is a little like this, since she was about 12months old we have seen many doctors but no one wants to confirm anything, she has had xrays and they have show that she has a tilted pelvis and that right side is smaller than the left, and she has also got dimples on all her joints what could this mean as no one will give us a diagnoses she is now nearly 2 1/2 and i feel like no one cares please answer me
It is very difficult for us mums and dads to objectively see our children. My son has aspergers and he displays none of those traits. However I know children who are 'normal' how have some of those traits! I personally watched how my son interacted at playground and nursery and realised that all the children have quirks at that age (lots of really bossy girls!). By Primary 1, it became evident that he understood the school interactions less than other children. However, he was a 'nice boy and never bothered the teacher too much, so she admitted that she tended to forget about him'. Basically the school nurse was my saviour, she realised that he had difficulty hopping (he has hypermobile joints)and he was referred to the occupational therapy team, this lead to a referral to psychologist. Intially, I was put down as over mumsy (I explained too many things to my son - the school blamed me!). The psychologist was my ally, he realised what was happening and expalined the situation to the school from then on the school have been much better. He has specialist help with motor skills, language (social stories) and reading. I hope this very brief summary helps.
