14. age 10 and a half to 11 he got worse punching holes in the walss kicking the walls ..broke some windows out with his bare hands..just uncontrollible behavior!..i would have to get him in a warm shower ,clothes and all to sooth him and then change his clothes and roll him in a blanket like a taco and apply deep presure to get him to a level of calm
15.became very agressive twards me at age 10-11yrs..i starde trying natural remidies and extra vitamins ..nothing worked
16.DEC. 2008 we detoxed him from all medications and feb. 2009 we started w/ a clean slate..we learned that stimulats that were givin to him for ADHD caused severe aggression , so we do not allow him to take them.
he was givin risperdol for Autism and he is still taking it ..it has opened him up..he is socializing and very talkative.
he is also taking Tazodone for sleep ..i would prefer he be on something natural.
17.he is very restless and cannot sit still..he speaks out of line and is very rude, he blurts things out when other people are talking
he can not keep his hands to him self , he always has to be touching someone or something..eats constantly ..although i try to keep a handle on this..he still sneaks food
18.he is still a little agressive but not nearly what he use to be..he still hits the walls occassionaly..mostly when he can not have his way
19. he did have eczema at age 4-5 ..we learned that he was mildly allergic to corn and corn products and raw tomatoes....Dr. told us to eliminate those foods from his diet for aleast a yr..and then reintroduce them slowly and the eczema would clear up
It did and it has not been back
20.any kind of feed back would be highly appreciated

In 2006 I suffered a 60db single-sided sudden sensorineural hearing loss, followed later by vertigo attacks and a diagnosis of Menieres Disease. I have since made a *full* recovery after suffering for 3 years. In my case these symptoms were the result a food allergy (which I have also recovered from).
I created a web site to document my own experience since it appears most ENTs have little idea about simple allergies (e.g. food, environmental) as one possible cause of significant & sudden hearing loss. [I can't post the URL on this site directly, but my user profile has it]
It includes scans of my hearing tests & allergy results.
( the House Ear Clinic - is an example of a medical practice that acknowledges the connection between allergies and hearing disorders. )
Good Luck & get well soon!

Our 12 year old son has autism. He was diagnosed with Autism when he was little over 3 years old. He has ADHD and Eczema. Increasingly, his ADHD is becoming dangerously out of control. He is obsessed with things like: computer, elevator and pretends he is taking the elevator everywhere in the house or outside, vehicles and so when outdoor, will run in the parking lot to watch other vehicles and look inside through the windows. Lately, he is into 'breaking' things. He is trying to break everything he can: Nintendo DS, toys of our two other children (they are normal). He shakes his head particularly when he goes to bed at night, spins his head during the day (but not always), wants to eat all the time ( loves pizza, chocolate milk, potato chips but we try not to give him food that increases his allergy and Eczema. When he goes to bed at night, takes a lot of time to fall asleep.
We have tried everything so far: Allopathic drugs that never worked and so stopped completely few moths ago, Chineese herbal and Acupuncture and he is on both of them right now and homeopathy also. However, he is growing up bigger, taller, heavier, quicker, and stronger. He can speak sentences to express his need for food, fun, play etc. He is 67 lbs and 4'9' tall. Could you please advise what to do? We wish he calms down little bit so that he can focus on things better and learn better. Please help.
P.S. he takes acupuncture once a week but the doctor says has to be at least twice a week but not on any homeopathic medicine right now (have tried Arsenic Alb. before).
