Was wondering how common if at all the following things are with any of your children with ASD :
-Hypermobility and low muscle tone.
-Congestion problems and recurrent nosebleeds.
-Glue ear and extremely infected Adenoids and Tonsils causing severe and recurrent infections and sleep apnea,resulting in the need for an operation.
-Itchy skin with no outward sign as to why it is so itchy.
-Dry skin and Eczema.
-Overactive Bladder, causing day and night accidents.
-Problems with sight i.e. complaining of vision going blurry when reading and writing, even though sight test is ok.
-Gets extremely hot/cold alot quicker than other children and goes very sweaty and red as a tomato after very little exertion and far more noticeable compared to other children.
-Gets very hot, red ears for no apparent reason.
-Chronic difficulty getting to sleep/staying asleep.
-Complains of heart pounding, gets out of breath easily, again far more noticeable compared to other children and you can feel their heart pounding in their chest.
Be very interested to see your replies and if anyones child does suffer from some of the things above. Also if they have any other diagnosis aswell as ASD due to any of the above!!!
