My son was recently diagnosed w/ CD. Took 2 months, way to long IMO. He deals w/ full body convulsions, unexplained pain, loss of speech, inability to hear or respond, along w/ some others. There isn't anything about this that makes a whole lot of sense to me. The situation is hard to get a handle on. We have found that muscle relaxants and morphine, will take him out of the episodes that he has. Working on counseling w/ Psychologist, and medication w/ Psychiatrist (Zoloft). Frankly, I feel like the medical community has done little to help him. Like many others, we feel on our own. I'm very sympathetic to the many other posters I've read about on this forum. If any one is interested I would enjoy e-mailing back and forth about our experiences, perhaps offer some encouragement. My prayers and good thoughts are w/ you all who are suffering.
