    I need help with SMA type 3 ?

    My 8 yr old son has motor problems from being a toddler. We had tests after tests etc. The doctor feels that its still genetic, and further tests will be done when we see him in may. But ive been looking up, kugelberg-welander disease and juvenile spinal muscular atrophy,both effecting the anterior horn cells. which are effecting my son.
    Does anyone know how to diagnose these diseases, etc.
    Im fed up weve been at this 7/8 years and i feel im having to push the docs all the time.

    Here are two links that give enough information for you to diagnose and check if if the symptoms match the disease you are concerned about.
