I was wondering if you can have just Spastic Diplegia without having CP ?? I have posted back around March 4th and Beth answered my question, but Im still kinda confused... I don't know if you can see my last post,I will try to make it short, my brother has been diagnosed with SD which I understand that is just a symptom of CP not an actual diagnoses.. The doctor does not say he has CP, and this all just developed in the last year in a half, losing his balance, and now walking with a cane, he has been to at least 5 doctors, tons of blood work and now two MRI which his new neurologist has ordered to compare the two MRI's to see if any changes within the last year, just found out no changes.. I also read you cannot develop CP or SD as an adult.. He has never ever had problems with walking or balance ever, When in his 40's would go hiking with no problems.. we are just stumped, and seem's the doctors are also.. I was wondering if anyone has heard of anything like this, or is it possible he does have CP... Thank you..
