Please write me if any one else has heard of Stereotypic movement disorder?????????? or has a child diagnosed with it maybe .,...... Thank you ,,,, DeAnna in Georgia

I know what I have to say my be way of base but my daughter was just diagnosed as Autistic
last week. She is 3 years old. I believe her problem is due to Lyme Disease. I don't know if
Lyme could cause your son's symptoms but I felt a need to at least let you know what Lyme can
do. It can cause terrible neurological symptoms that mimic other diseases. In no way do I mean to
lesson what anyone is going through with Autism but it seems that no one really knows why
Autism occurs. I just hope that my situation will in some way ring true to others. I wish you only
the best for Jacob and your family! Maybe one day we'll find an answer to all these horrible
diseases and these beautiful children will live the life they were meant to live. My heart goes out to all of you.
