    Hi @hass, thanks for sharing this with us and sorry to hear about your pain.

    Unfortunately I don't think you'll find the answers you're looking for here on the community, as we're not medical professionals and cannot give this kind of information. However, I wonder if you've considered seeing another GP for a second opinion?

    Back in 1994 an international symprosium changed the name from dyspraxia to Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) which is how dyspraxia is now referred to in terms of international research.
    Some of the international research has identified a commoon comorbidity with both ADHD,, especially the  ADD type, and Sensory Processing Disorders.

    The leading UK researcher regarding DCD is Prof. Amanda Kirby, who you may be able to follow on Twitter where she post information about DCD and related issues
