    I'm trying to get a second opinion on my sons symptoms. I have FM Myofascial Pain, Sjogren's, Celiac and other conditions and my son is displaying some of the same symptoms I grew up with...pains, aches, fatigue.
    My son is having extreme difficulty with handwriting due to painful wrists and hip, back pain from his desk chair. He tires easily at running and PE and playground games.
    He seems energetic. He's very funny, talks a lot and has bursts of physical energy...but no endurance. He has tender points too. BUT, USCF says he's normal. I get it...he's not sick enough. BUT, I grew up the same way and now I suffer from this damn condition and am fully disabled.
    The main point here, though I don't really want him to be diagnosed, I tend to think a diagnosis can't take place until symptoms are worse. He is having difficulty in school already. He is going to have an IEP evaluation, but I need to have some medical support as well to get him help for his challenges at school.

    Any suggestions?
