Tests and blood work SHOULD have been done on this child! Knowing her history, I would have started by checking the spinal cord itself and to see how the protective fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord (cerebrospinal fluid) is flowing. I am also interested in knowing what her lead level is and the results of any other tests she may have had throughout her life. If you have further info, I am available for a video consult through my website.
