Hopefully an answer
My nine year old daughter has been overly sensitive to tastes, sounds, and touch her entire life. She can taste the slightest amount of spice in foods, hates minty toothpaste(it burns her mouth),covers her ears at the movies, and cannot stand to have anything rubbing her skin, like seams in her shirts or the seams in socks. She also does not like topical medications put on her.
She is clumsy and very timid. She has been on a particular ride several times, so she knew what to expect. She never has liked the ride because of the small slide, but she will go on it. The last time she screamed horribly. She crashes into things and knocks things over all the time.
We tend to be on the over-protective side with her, so I don't know if I'm exaggerating her problems, or even adding to them. I've mentioned it to her pediatrician several times, but she kind of blows it off.
I would value any input from the moms and dads that are dealing with the same problems. Thank you in advance.
