@Aidan Walsh Sorry for the the mis-spell of your name. Old brain syndrome here - can't remember proper names, and spelling is going to hell.
Anyway, both of the grandkids with tongue tie have delayed speech. My granddaughter, not so much, my grandson is quite delayed - age 3. He had the tongue tie surgery at under a year- his Mom and Dad are not certain it was the right decision. He understands everything, but pronunciation is very difficult. He also has a counterclockwise hair whorl on the right side of his head. Unusual. And my granddaughter has 2 hair whorls, one in the front above her forehead. Unusual. So, yes, there are a lot of glitchy structural differences that may or may not be important. But hair whorls are absolutely connected to brain development.
My son also had delayed speech, delayed reading, delayed lots of things. But about age 9-10 everything turned around. He graduated 2nd in large high school class with heavy science/math, and cum laude computer science, Univ. of California, Santa Barbara. He has a very successful internet business. Very smart guy. But also has some health issues, some depression, had ear problems, and eating problems, fatigue. He had a well documented case ( IgG/IgM) of EBV at age 5, 1986. Had multiple neurological symptoms following this - including severe urinary frequency, pain in fingers and toes, nighttime hunger, depression. He also has ( mild) scoliosis, as do I, as did my Mom. Also RhD neg.
So, Aidan, seems as if we are different somehow. I keep searching. Thank you for sharing. I will continue sharing, too. I may learn something new tomorrow. Sometimes we need to reach beyond the scientific method to the realms that few can really reach into. So . . . Blessings.
That is fine on the spelling it was just a correction thought that's all...The tongue tie has me thinking but will ask when I see the Doctors...I still feel Eagles Syndrome is involved, I know it also runs in Families I know one Woman
her & her child have this & it can block major Arteries & through the neck is best option each side. I know tongue tie can go with Eagle as well combined...I also have urine frequency issues & told also no scoliosis...Dr.Ron Davis
Stanford Genome Centre says IDO-2 70 tested Positive to this mutation none of the Controls were Positives he believes this is a major player now they are tying to find medicines to correct it now.Open Medicine Foundation on Facebook Dr. Ron Davis...
