What is Tay-Sachs disease?
Infants with the disease appear normal until 3-6 months, when their development slows and muscles used for movement weaken. Affected infants lose motor skills such as turning over, sitting and crawling. They also develop an exaggerated startle to loud noises. As the disease progresses, children with Tay-Sachs disease experience seizures, vision and hearing loss, intellectual disabilities, and paralysis. -credits go to "genetics home research"
Its not your fault.
There is no treatment for Tay-Sachs disease itself, only ways to make the patient more comfprtable.
