So, is your son on any medication now ?

Have you talked to his Dr. about these symptoms?

A bit more info. would be helpful - thank you!
buggs6971 replied to momuv4girls's response:
no, no meds as of yet . we havnt seen the doc yet , i did make an appointment , that why im tring to get all my ducks in a row before we go , so i know whats available prior to the visit
momuv4girls replied to buggs6971's response:
I would make a list of his symptoms, when they started, what triggers them etc...
Also, have your son make a list too.

Depending on what the Dr. finds.....he may refer you to an adolescent psychologist and/or behavioral therapy to help him deal with the anxiety, if that is indeed what he is experiencing.

Puberty can often be the onset of psychological disorders due to hormonal shifts.
Hopefully his pedi will do a check-up, and take the time to talk to you both and give you a direction to go.

Take care,
