Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I've been looking for a community where I can get more information about the issues our family faces daily, as well as just find a good support source! Here's what we have going on over here: *My 10 year old DS has ADHD inattentive with comorbid anxiety. He is on a low level of Focalin, and he has an IEP in place at school. Right now, we're trying to decide if we need to up his treatment, including returning to the psychologist for his anxiety. He also has undiagnosed GI issues and has had them since he was 2. His pediatrician thinks that he is just a person who isn't as, well, regular as a 'normal' person, but after DS convinced 6 physicians that he had appendicitis back in October but didn't, the surgeon thinks there's more going on. So back to the GI for him. *My 2 yr old DS has issues with wheat, tree nuts and peanuts. We made the wheat connection on our own before the nuts. He tolerated peanuts at first, but last month had a very obvious allergic reaction to chips that were cooked in peanut oil (they were just potatoes, salt and peanut oil) that almost resulted in pulling out the epi pen for the first time. He also has broken out in hives immediately after eating tree nuts. Wheat flares up his eczema. His allergy tests have come back negative, but he's too young for a food challenge. So despite all the reactions, the allergist won't classify it officially as an allergy yet. He's hoping he'll grow out of it, but reactions are getting worse and not better. So there you have it. Nothing severe, but still our own little frustrations and concerns. All of this is new in our family - I have other family members with ADHD but who weren't diagnosed until adulthood. However, living with food allergies is scary and new. Hope to get to know you all better!!
