I am wondering if anyone has experienced anything along the lines of the "twin to twin" syndrome that is often spoken of. Where one twin feels the other twins pain, or when 1 is ill the other has the same symptoms, they cannot be apart for long, etc???? I have a set of twins that are 2 1/2 years old (boy and girl). I have noticed (as have others) that they cannot be apart for very long without going through "withdrawal type" symptoms. Also, they usually end up with the same symptoms at the same time with illnesses. They seem to know when the other is hurt. They are NOT identical so, I was wondering if anyone else with fraternal twins has seen any of this or dealt with it. If so, does it get more intense, or does it start slacking off at some point?
