Not the pediatrician neuro, just the pediatrician. Jessie came to me and said she was having trouble breathing. She was freaking out. I got her calmed and gave her some albuterol. The pediatrician finally called me back. I am highly disappointed with this woman. I respect that she doesn't know what is going on. fully respect that. But with each illness any of my kids get she tries to write it off as anxiety. yes. there IS anxiety. And worry. And fear. but they are NOT the cause of this. they did not start it. Therapy will not stop it. She actually tried to say that we should think about a therapist instead of a neuro. Or an inpatient stay at a psychiatric hospital. She also thought the adhd symptoms jessie had way back when were "just anxiety". She once tried to tell me it was not Absence epilepsy. I agree that there are factors that are made worse by anxiety. This surely is. But that does NOT mean that it is all caused by anxiety. I heard that for so many years as I fought to figure out what my own health problems were caused by. I WILL not let my daughter be slapped with the stupid stick that says all a child's/woman's problems are caused by is anxiety. I mentioned a movement disorder because I really don't think the pediatrician has any clue that EEG's actually do not catch most seizures because it measures such a limited area of the brain. I didn't want her brain to overload and catch on fire. Sigh. Thanks for letting me vent. I truly think it is a movement disorder. Hopefully the new neuro on Mon will help. My mom is also a tiger at the docs so she is taking us to the appointment. husband is horrible at doctor's visits. He won't even tell them symptoms when HE is one patient. I have to send a flippin' note with him. I always feel like I am writing a note to the principal or something. Sigh. I cannot wait for Monday to get here.
