For us the sensory seeking was related to my son's eyes not working together properly (tracking) so that much of the time he was seeing in double vision unless he REALLY concentrated.

Hi Melissa! You replied to my post on the seizure board right after my older daughter was dx too. So, your daughter went through an EEG because you thought that was a possibility and then didn't end up having them, huh? That's interesting. What made you think she was having them?

Because my oldest has this genetic thing going on, and spinal cord problems, and my youngest has a sacral dimple (which is a sign of the problems my oldest has, but my oldest doesn't have it), and she has abnormal sensory things going on, I constantly worry about her. :(

I try to take things as they come, and not worry to much (although I would worry more with seizures.)

You could look and see if there is a Shriners near you (you need an Orthopedic Hospital specifically, not a burn one or....I can't remember what the other one is).

My son's teacher noticed that he was sort of blanked out at the end of class and brought it up to me.

I wouldn't say that we have been through the wringer, and most of this is not stuff that I have stressed about much.
