Does anyone here have a child with Mitochondrial disease? My daughter has multiple medical issues but no real diagnosis. I have been doing some research on things and Mito keeps coming up and fits her but its such a broad range its hard to tell. I cant really even go ask a dr to do the testing either because they are trying to blame me for her medical issues so if I go demanding invasive testing it will not end well. We feel like she may have something genetic and are still waiting on her micro array but Im scared what will happen if that doesnt find anything. I love my daughter and I accept her for who she is but its very hard to not know why she has the problems she has. Just to sum her up a bit, Gtube, failure to thrive which has no known cause, DGE, urinary reflux, GERD and Nissen, orthopedic issues, she just saw a sleep specialist because of a video I have of her breathing funny in her sleep and they say she is doing something called paradoxial breathing which in a 2 year old is not normal so she may have sleep apnea, Speech delay and communication delay, and sensory issues.
It just kills me that we have no answers and I cant do anything about it.
