Melanie...

is your son still on abs? How much?

 

I think it is very strange for a 15 year old to suddenly start wetting the bed. I would think your doc would want to do a workup for that (urinalysis, urine culture etc) to r/o out a bladder infection or other medical issue.

 

I also wonder if he is on any meds that could be causing this as a side effect.

I sure hope someone can help recommend someone to you. As of yesterday we were on new doctor #15 ... hmm.. or maybe it was #16. At any rate I think we may have found a sympathetic ear. She plans on calling Dr. Swedo to talk to her more about DD and see if they can't come up with a good solution. Ultimately this new doc (a pediatric psychiatrist - go figure) has told me to prepare to start from the beginning so we can scientifically approach this and make sure we have everything covered. She sounds like she'll be thorough, but I'm not getting my hopes up - they've been dashed away so many times before.

 

Hugs to you and your son!
