Sensory processing vs anxiety
My child, age 7, is diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and the psychologist seems to ignore her sensory processing problems. She has no tolerance for certain things touching her skin (i.e. lotion, tags,sock, underwear) as well as being extremely uncomfortable with big or fast movements (i.e. swings, bike, any rough housing)
I am told that these sensory issues are due to hypervigilance with anxiety, but she has had these sensory problems since birth and I don't think infants can have anxiety disorders. We are at a standstill with treatment, Docs want to use medication, I don't. Would it even do any good to push the sensory issue?
