What a miserable situation for the whole family! I can't imagine. But I can believe the disbelief; sooo many have experienced that.

I doubt that so VERY many lie to their doctors or are hypochondriacs. Doctors' default reaction should be first to believe what the patient and/or the parents say. (First do no harm!) It can mean so much just to be believed.

I hope that the new psych is very good, and that you also have a neurologist (or other appropiate specialist) and that they can cooperate with each other. Best wishes to you and your son!
