Tracey111 Posted November 20, 2008 Report Share Posted November 20, 2008 Can it be that vaccines and labor medication caused damage to a part of the brain and this in fact resulted in the symptoms coming to the surface? I have asked myself again and again what I did differently with my second son. I have come down to slightly less intense prenatal care, and labor/delivery problems. The anesthesiologist (?) was very young and it was midnight....he numbed by upper body and had to start again....I recall seeing three and a half syringes during the epidural process! My blood pressure dropped very low and my son's heart rate cut in half towards the end of the delivery. They were going to take him C section, but his heart rate recovered and he was delivered soon after. He is now classified ADHD, tics, and is having trouble reading (LD, I think....but the school system tests him for 2 hours and makes the decision that he is not!!). I have started researching the link between learning disabilities and reduced blood pressure/heart rate during delivery. I found a couple of articles. I looked at anesthesia and LD too, but didn't find too much. Now, the tics started after the most recent vaccine, and I also think that at one point in his younger shots they did a "makeup shot" with his normal scheduled shots. SO, is there a link to some type of damage done to a specific portion of the brain? The nuerologist told me that LD/ADHD/and tics are all very related.....I recall some late night reading on basal ganglia damage and tics???? Are they all related to a certain portion of the brain....and if so, is it pure genetics that creates the symtoms.....or a combo of genetics and damage to brain cells????? Has anyone else looked at this before? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
