Genetic defect? symptoms listed? ideas?

Unread postby HealthForum » Sun Mar 27, 2011 9:22 am

I’m hoping that someone here with knowledge of / specialty in genetic syndromes can help me identify this underlying condition. The symptoms I have are deteriorating slowly, and I’m very scared by the fact that I do not know which syndrome is responsible, or what the outcome will be. Please help me; my symptoms are very real Crying or Very sad

I've been enduring these strange health problems for quite some time; the root cause of which I believe (coming from a background in science) is due to a genetic defect. I have quite a number of strange facial features & dental abnormalities, many of which I have noticed are attributed to various syndromes resulting from chromosomal aberrations (I.e. duplications, deletions, inversions, etc).

No doctor I’ve previously seen cared enough (or knew enough about this topic) to effectively find any syndrome which fit the criteria of symptoms. I have since lost my medical insurance and cannot afford to consult with a geneticist or undergo genetic testing.

I have a high IQ of 140. I have been diagnosed some time ago with Asperger’s syndrome (autism spectrum disorder), which is the cause for my high I.Q. I am 23 years old and have a background in biochemistry. I am 6’ tall and weighing in at 270 lbs.
