Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

You all should look into a group of conditions called Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy. A lot, or almost all, of the symptoms fit the bill. A lot of the kids I've read about could possibly have one of these HSAN conditions. To be diagnosed they would have to have missing or fewer sensory and/or autonomic nerves. The only way to find that out is a nerve biopsy, but they can do nerve conduction studies and go off the symptoms your child has.


Also conditions such as Cerebral Palsy can cause sensory problems.

I have a form of one of the HSAN conditions. My daughter might also have. They were supposed to be autosomal-recessive, but now with my daughter probably having they may change some of the genetic information. Anyway, I just though I would mention these group of sensory and autonomic conditions because I didn't see them here and they fit the symptoms.

No need to scare people

No one on here is describing ulcers and severe function loss. This condition is VERY different and this suggestion may be well meaning but adds fear to already fearful parents. This is a debilitating disease that has dramatically different presentation from SPD.
