Cerebral Palsy, ME and CFS?
Hi I'm Beth I am a mother of 2 (daughter 30 and son 27) and a grandmother of 2 boys 4yrs and 14mths. My daughter 'T' was born at 28wks gestation resulting in cerebral palsy mostly on her right side x She has had botox and tendon stretch and tendon transfers, she was on epilepsy medicationwhen she was very young as it was thought that shehad petit marle. She has scoliosis of the spine and suffers from a lot of pain, discomfort and numbness all over her body but mostly from the waist down x She has days when she has no energy at all and no enthusiasm or drive x she suffers grom complete exhaustion both physical and mental x I don't know much about ME and chronic fatigue syndrome but i understand that there could possibly be a link to cerebral palsy x I would like to know how we find out if T is suffering from cfs. How do we approach her Dr and suggest that we think she might be? Can anyone give us advise please x Thank you x
