I have a four year old son. When he was born he had some problems with his kidney function. Then pretty soon I thought he was having severe digestion issues. He would cry for hours, he was real stiff and would jerk his body so hard it was hard to even hold on to him sometimes. I made countless trips to his pediatrician and tried changing his diet and every probiotics known to man. I described exactly what was happening the entire time and she wouldn't look into anything. He has developmental deficiencies and I think West syndrome.
