Ataxia and TBI
My 29 year old son had a motorcycle accident in October of 2006. He suffers from ataxia, which interferes with his daily living and therapy. We have tried all sorts of meds... I took him off of everything - didn't notice any difference and now the neurologist started him on mysoline. Has anyone tried, or know of, any other meds or natural substances??? I also have him on neuro optimizer. He is also very depressed and wishes he were dead.. took him off 2 different anti-depressants and he was better for awhile, but now back to the depression. Would appreciate any comments or advice. Thank you - Cherie - Shauns Mom

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
