I'm new here. My son is 26 and started experiencing symptoms 6 years ago. His first break was at 19, and he was in a hospital setting for months, unable to speak or eat much. He ended up in a fetal position, at 6'4" weighed 140 lbs and did not know who I was. I took a lot of time, daily visits (once he would consent to them) to start getting him back. I had to feed him, as he could not feed himself (fine motor skills gone) and when they did return, he became left handed, and quite proficient (always was right handed). Things improved, and it has been a roller coaster. Fast forward 6 years, several hospitalizations later, pretty much gone through all meds and trying to find some hope. He is now on Haldol and Benztropine, but he is not well. The last break was a couple weeks ago and he becomes stiff and unable to move. He had gone off all meds for 6 months. I guess I am looking for others to learn from and provide hope.
