Genetic spastic diplegia
We are struggling to get a proper diagnosis for our 9 year old daughter. she wasnt diagnosed until 6 when walking became an issue (she had met all her milestones growing up) they diagnosed CP spastic diplegia, but we are wondering if there is a genetic link as I too have very tight legs that dont straighten when i walk, very busy nerves and have had hip/ walking issues growing up. My father cannot walk and has a profound limp legs buckiling in. Anyone know of a genetic link through generations? what genetic research/ councellors etc are available to me in Wales/England - Help as her condition is worsening.
