I didn't see a category that really fits this post... I was hoping for a "health issues" or similar category, but at any rate, here goes:
My 15 year old with DMD has been non-ambulatory for two years now. At his current stage he has trouble even sitting up from a prone position. He has lost a lot of of his range of motion, but still has no trouble feeding himself (if the food is held in the hand, or is bite-sized) and likes to throw a baseball.
His condition is complicated by several other issues such as autism, global delay, and emotional problems (i.e. OCD, anxiety disorder, night terrors and sleep panic attacks, etc, etc, etc...) so it is impossible at times to tell what the root source is of any particular issue (and of course many issues are a composite of sources).
At any rate, the past couple months he has been vomiting almost every morning. Is this a common trait of mid or late progression?
Another issue, not to be graphic, is related to his BMs. he's always had a lose stool, but he's also operated like clockwork, going every morning. However, as of late he'll go again at mid-day or the evening in addition to his morning BM. As with the vomiting this seemed to start quite spontaneously and instead of being sporadic is rather consistent.
I just don't know how concerned I should be.... is this typical progression or should we be discussing these issues with his doctor?
