    All my sons 10 tests came back normal !

  6. I stumbled across this as a possible trigger for my son ..tics and rages Someone on this board planted the seed in my head for me We have ADT Dimmer switches Wireless router box is always on Laptops Playstation Cordless phones Cell phones microwave In my sons room where he tics as soon as his little head hits the pillow ! 1 foot away from his bed ...air purifier, humidifier plugged in, and 4 feet on the other side of the room, a light and baby monitor plugged in! In the car! Satellite Sirius radio ! He only tics at the dinner table, car, and bedroom ! The dinner table is 3 feet from the chord less phone and wireless router! Could I have stumbled across something huge here? I turned the radio off in the car all day and no tics...In the car Unplugged everything in his room ...no tics Technology could be hurting my son, I would have never guessed it Would love to hear more I'm slowly educating myself.. His tics are sooo bad in the winter and I thought dust, vitamin d deficiency, winter....inside more ! He is outside all the time in spring, summer and fall and his tics are come and go.... But if he is inside all the time around all this stuff it makes sense ! http://www.emfsensitivity.org/DriveCar.html We have a newer car and after reading the link above, I want to get rid of it now
  7. Night time

    It still Happens when he sleep at his grandparents house... I unplugged everything in his room, and turned the wi fi off... Also kept the satellite radio off in the car today I did a test in two other cars over the weekend and he does tic in other older cars, and newer Possible electromagnetic sensitivity ? The wi fi box is directly below his room and he had three things plugged into is outlet right beside his bed Might be crazy but I will try anything !
  8. Night time

    New as in 2009,2011 He just started zithromax for possible pandas, wonder if I should unplug stuff tonight to see ? He also has a monitor plugged in...the base unit I thought I heard something about wi fi boxes for the Internet ?...
  9. Night time

    Interesting !!! Both our cars are new! His new mattress is cotton filled though... No box spring... He has a air purifier on, and humidifier ...dust allergy and it's awfully dry here in MN in the winter I only use hot water and a little soap when I clean
  10. Is this PANDAS and narcolepsy?

    Hi ! My story is a long one as well....very long... 2.5 yrs long. My son has basically lost his ability to sleep. He keeps his eyes open, wake up at 2-3am and could tic for hours! We are still on the middle of testing and waiting for all results. I know this, my son had two days without tics on omnicef, and because I pushed heis on 21 days of zithromax. He screams for me at night, afraid of something, hallucinations, tics all night. Our doctor knows we are going insane trying to help our son ... My son saw a sleep specialist and a neurologist last year and the neurologist was awful !! It sounds like you are documenting all of this , way to go !! Something is to be said when a child gojng thru all of this responds well to antibiotics ! When i read the list of symptoms of pandas it hit me like a ton of bricks, that list is my son , meaning every single symptom he experiences daily !
  11. Please wish me luck....

    Have a safe trip, prayers are coming your way !! Melatonin might help ?!
  12. I need a Tylenol asap

He did have a sinus infection but no fever etc
