My 3 year old has low muscle tone in his mouth and legs, requiring him to have physical, speech and occupational therapy.
His old pediatrician knew this but never said anything to me about how it was cause for concern or anything. She never sent us for tests or anything to find out why.
I switched pediatricians because in short, his old one was a bitch so I got rid of her.
His new pedi today seems concerned that my son has the low muscle tone going on. He wants to do a blood test to see if he can figure out why and possibly refer us to a specialist for a muscle biopsy. Depending on what that says we would possibly have to go to the Cleveland Clinic in the worst case scenario.
Anyone been through this? I didn't even know that low muscle tone was cause for concern, but his new pedi says he wants to get to the bottom of it so that in 2 years my kid isn't a cripple.
Like I said though his old pedi just wasn't concerned about it, she never gave it a second thought.
