Is SPD linked to: A bad childhood illness or Rocky Mountain Spotted fever?
When my son was 3 1/2 he had a severe case of rocky mountain spotted fever that did not respond to meds like it usually does. He was on 4 different antibiotics at once and even spent a night in the intensive care unit. The infection caused swelling on the brain. His fever was extremely high for well over a week maybe even 2 weeks.
So.....has anyone ever studied or surveyed these children to see if there was anything in the past that could have "triggered" SPD? We are new to the disorder and I have read it is from birth, but just wondering if this could have aggravated it.
