  • Take him to the Dr. because that's not a normal reaction.

  • agree with m-avi
    sounds like could maybe be SP-sensory processing disorder

  • love how when you put these things to the test on the internet everyone tells you your kid is crazy. anyway, am trying much less dramatic approach, flower essences (homeopathics) and craniosacral therapy. went to g.p. yesterday and wasn't overly worried, said probably just an age/stage and to go back if things didn't improve or got worse. here in NZ we don't (excuse the pun reference) panic so much and run straight to pshchiatrists!
