My son has neurology apt today! UPDATE

First one ever and he is almost 20 years old

he has been doing some funky head tremor thing for a long time now and more frequent now-it only last couple seconds

and also he blinks his eyes and holds his head when lights are on at times

and at times he will cover his ears even when his favorite program is on and sign sick

he also holds his head a lot

I am thinking headaches/migraines-possibly??\

hope we get some answers today


UPDATE

The neurologist is really nice and seems concerned of his condition and seems to want to help

Yes neurologist states migraines-so he is on a med now-one time at night-makes you sleepy-she feels he needs a med-I really don't like given out meds but also don't him in tons of pain

Also she ordered a blood test, urine test, and getting an EEG set up for him

The blood test we did today -the urine test tried but he could not go and I was already and the EEG we are waiting for an apt.

He is suppose to see the neurologist back in 3 weeks though they could not get him in until May 2nd but they put him on the immediate cancellation list

Good luck. My son is 2yr. Has had a neuro since he was 6mo. He does head bobbing and blinking and also light sensitivity. Had several test he was diagnosed with a tic prob sensory related issues. I really like my sons neuro dr. My sons first neuro dr I didnt like. So I asked for a new one and im glad I did. Good luck. I know any time my son would see any new dpt I got soo anxious. He at one point saw at least 6 specialist.Good luck and keep us pposted. Hugs

Good luck. have they done a mri or ct or even a eng testing. conner is sensitive to light and while back was blinking allot and head banging they had to rule out the possibility of seizures.
