“He was so fatigued, but he couldn’t sleep with the horrible muscle pain he was suffering.  On top of that, he missed 60 days of school,” said Mike McMullen of his 11-year old son, Matthew.  Seeking a second opinion, Matthew saw Dr. Lela Brink, a pediatrician in State College.  “After extensive testing and consults with a pediatric neurologist and pediatric rheumatologist, we found out he had had an undiagnosed case of mononucleosis that had settled in his muscles.”  Treated with a muscle relaxer, Matthew was soon back to his active lifestyle.  This past year, he played on his junior high school football team and didn’t miss a day of school due to illness.  Matthew, now 13 years old, recently participated in a two-day Steelers Youth Football Camp that was highlighted by his catching a touchdown pass from former Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch.  “I’m so thankful for the expert care he received with Dr. Brink.” #GeisingerStories
