My youngest son has not been diagnosed with anything. We have him in early intervention for a speech delay and some thought to be "sensory issues". We brought him to our pediatric developmentalist who diagnosed my older son with PDDNOS. She does not see any autism traits in him but suggested that we keep on monitoring him and bring him in for 6 month appts. Our main concern is that his hands tremble every now and then we he is doing something. He also will talk out of the side of his mouth sometimes and squeezes his eyes really tight once in awhile. Unfortunately, the pediatric developmentalist was unable to experience these movements in him during our visit but told us not to worry. We also brought him to a neurologist and tested him for about an hour for seizures. She told us the tests came back negative. I expressed my concerns for what he is doing and she downplayed it. I am really worried and don't know what to do. My husband and I are trying to capture it on video so that we can show it to the doctor's, but it is hard. He doesn't do it all the time and I can't follow him around with a video camera all day. I don't know if I should bring him to the emergency room, but I fear that is a wasted trip where they will just tell me to contact a follow up with my neurologist. I am so afraid that he is having seizures that nobody is doing anything about. Have any of you experienced this or have any suggestions?
