Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
Neurologist: Not sure what workup has been done, and what diagnoses have been made, but i would highly suggest getting a neurologist involved to investigate. This constellation of symptoms suggests an issue at the spinal cord level, or a nerve degeneration issue, and requires immediate evaluation.
