I'm sorry to hear you're going through this.

Unfortunately, it's impossible to say what could be causing this without a physical examination. I suggest you make an appointment with your primary care provider as soon as possible because the earlier this problem is diagnosed, the better the outlook for treating it effectively.

You're doing a wonderful service in caring for a disabled child. I salute you and hope you get a diagnosis soon!
