Does Anosmia count as physical, or are ones that effect the senses under a separate category?

Is it possible that you have dyspraxia (a disorder that makes movement somewhat difficult)? From what I've seen on WP, it seems to be somewhat common in autistic individuals.
[u]Information on Dyspraxia here/u].


I frequently wonder if I have a connective tissue disorder, which would count as a physical disability, but that's probably moreso due to my sub-hypochondria than to actually fitting the full diagnostic criteria for a connective tissue disorder. :lol:

I will check that out is that something you can get a diagnosed by a doctor for

I also sometimes use A wheelchair like when I went to the fair or when I went to Disney world because the distance was too much for me I don't have one that I bought but I rent. Also when I broke my ankle I could not handle crutches properly so I would use for that week

I was thinking of getting a prescription for one but I don't know if I need it I don't know if I'm faking it if I exaggerating or if I'm just lazy maybe one of the special needs strollers

My general practitioner doesn't really know about my walking but my neurologist did but now I haven't seen her in a long time and don't know if he's alive or dead and my grandmother won't call her. I even have hard time physically writing even typing is hard. It gives me cramps.

I have deafness in both ears where the tiny hairs in my cochleas are damaged and therefore, I cannot pick up a lot of high pitch frequency sounds at all. Everything sounds muffled too, even with my hearing aids.

If this counts, I have congenital anosmia - no sense of smell from birth.

I suspect I have some type of genetic parkinsonism. My grandmother had the same symptoms of it that I have, but like me she didn't go to the doctor that much so we don't really know what she had. Her posture, gait, tremor etc. got worse as she got older. Sometimes I notice that I'm walking like her and it scares me. Whatever she had, seemed like it was degenerative, but it progressed slowly.

I believe so, yes; I am not sure which doctor in specific (though a neurologist seems like a good bet); they should be able to look at your symptoms, run some tests to rule out other possibilities, if need be, and then diagnose you based on your symptoms. You could also bring the issue up with your general practitioner and see if they may know something--some GPs know more about certain issues than others; it may also be that they'll be able to refer you to someone who can figure it out if they can't.

If you are wanting to move about/write/type but find it difficult to do so, the problem is not laziness (laziness would be just not wanting to do things in the first place). You do seem to have something going on; what that "something" is, I do not really know, as I am no doctor.

Meniere's disease which has caused a serious problem with my balance. Throw in all the normal sensory input problems that come with Asperger's and I have never been able to adjust like most people with Meniere's eventually do. I fall... a lot as a result. The more anxious I become, the more I fall.

I have a rare low vision disorder that makes me have some color blindness, very nearsighted & sensitive to bright lights & glasses don't help the nearsightedness alot. I have a tremor disorder that acts up when I'm nervous, frustrated or doing things with fine motor-skills. I also have lots of allergies & am prone to skin eczema but I don't consider em disabilities persay thou I did mention them when dealing with Social Security paperwork sense they would cause problems if I worked in certain environments. I'm on Social Security Disability because of these things as well of my mental stuff thou I have worked in the past some.
