He has several other underlying issues and our Doc took blood to get a genetic test for Muckle Wells Syndrome, I am not conviced that he has this but he does have PDD-NOS, severe food and envirnmental allergies, poor eyesight, conductive hearing loss, severe eczema rash on a daily basis, joint and muscle pain, gets sick all the time like pneumonia/bronchyitis, has ear deformities, the list goes on and on. Does anyone know anything about this syndrome and if you have to have all the characteristics to have this or not. thanks for anyones help
