  1. Hi Prestopony, Thanks for your reply. Can you tell me if my DD symptoms sounds like PAN/PANDA? My DD emetophobia started when she first saw me vomit on the plane while on vacation. Her symptoms were afraid to eat and to get on the plane. The fear of eating subsided over the next 6 months and she was pretty much back to normal. Until she vomited the first time in her life recently, everything changed. She was afraid to eat, to the point just a few bites of crackers. She also had trouble getting into the car, going to places, going far from home, worry about getting sick, any body mi
  2. My daughter vomited for the first time in her adolescent life and caused mental anxiety about eating, fear of vomiting, social anxiety, anxiety going far from home and the anxiety also bring on daily headache, lightheadedness and chest tightness. She didn't have any anxiety prior to the vomiting. After she vomited, it was like a domino affect. Tried medications but she was sensitive to the side effects. We also did the Anti-Dnase B Titer and ASO with negative result. Did bloodwork and noted some vitamin deficiency. Started 4 weeks ago with supplements, Vit D3, fish oil, probiotic, a multi wit

  4. Hi all, I suspect PANDA. Can someone let me know what tests to run since I am seeing my DD's doctor Thurs. Also, does this sound like PANDA? My DD vomited from a stomach flu end of January and few days later, sudden phobia about eating and can only eat simple food and very few things. Food she used to love to eat, she no longer can eat, because she thinks she may be allergic or eating will make her vomit. Her anxiety is so bad that she has debilitating physical symptoms after eating, like headache, lightheadedness, chest tightness making it hard to breathe, stomach pain. The p
  5. My DD vomited 3 weeks ago, and she has severe anxiety about eating for fear of vomiting and after eating, she has debilitating chest pain that makes it hard to breath and stomach pain. When standing up, all pain symptoms worse. We are seeing a therapist who uses EMDR. Have you heard of such anxiety that causes overwhelming pain?
  6. I realized this is an old post. Just want to following up with you if the audo program is still helping your son? Looking for solutions to help with my DD anxiety and panic issues. Thanks!
  7. Hi Sheila. After many trial of errors, I discovered my son's tics were allergy related. There is a direct relationship with environmental allergy to his vocal tics. When I pin pointed the specific allergen(s) and treated it with NAET, the tics stopped within a few days. The NAET vials didn't really work. I had my practitioner use the actual allergen(s) and have my son hold it for NAET treatment. I also found that my son has a combination allergy. He can test negative for all the allergy one at a time, but if he were to hold them together, he test positive. My son had a lot of various
  8. Hi Sheila, Thanks for taking the time to research the info. I combed thru the internet and couldn't find any reference. My son is back to normal. Glad that it was only temporary.
  9. Hi Sheila, It is a TB skin test. The nurse injected a small amount of fluid under the skin. I suppose it is tuberculum purified protein derivative. It caused a tiny bubble but that was gone within a day and his TB test was concluded negative. My son got the TB test at the tail end of his cold. After the TB test, 2 days later, the cold got worse, cough and body ache but no fever. Then the 2 incidents of confusion. I have been giving him 3,000 mg of vitC to help with detox just in case the TB injection caused his immune system to react. Any suggestions is appreciated.
  10. Thx Chemar for your help and reply. I am hoping it is a fluke and it is good that you are not aware that TB skin test triggers confusion. However, are you aware if TB skin test has side effects for the TS and multiple allergy kids? I have been so careful with vaccinations with my son, but didn't think much about the TB skin test.
  11. My son who is 18, got a TB skin test at the tail end of a cold. His pediatrician said TB skin test can be done with a cold, it is not like a vaccine injection. Two days later, his cold got much worse, body ache, congestion and cough but no fever. Since the TB test, my son had 2 confusion incidents. Two days after TB skin test, my son went to the wrong place for me to pick him up after school. I have been picking him up at the same spot everyday for the last year, except on few occasions I pick up him at a different location due to his class. When i was on the phone with him asking where
  12. Thanks Sheila for your suggestions. I will look into an endocrinologist. Thanks to your book and the many moms and dads suggestions, my son is doing well. I discovered his tics were triggered by food, environment and chemical allergies. I was able to find the specific allergens to treat his vocal tics via NAET. It was an amazing process the witness. Since the liver regulates bilirubin and testosterone, I was wondering if there is a connection. Can my son's autoimmune related issue like eczema and psoriasis cause the body to attack its hair follicle? His GI dr. recommended su
  13. Hi GaGa, When did your son develop head/neck tic? How long has it been going on? Do you see an allergy connection? Epsom salt bath will help with detox and relax his muscle. Use 2C of salt per bath and sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Be sure to drink filter water after to facilitate detoxification. I would suggest you find a craniosacral practitioner to help your son ease his head/neck tic because it is gentle and noninvasive. I totally understand what you are going thru. Hang in there.
  14. It has been a few years since I post in this forum. My son start to experience temple receding hairline last August and in just 6 months, the hair thinning is getting noticeable. There is no family history on my side but my husband has frontal receding started in his early 30's but he is receding very slow. Just wondering such early hairloss has to do with my son's past tourette syndrome, along with food, environmental and chemical allergies, eczema, and seborrhic dermatitis on his head and face. Just found out my son has Gilbert's Syndrome recently, just above normal. My son wants to try
  15. Do you mean Northern Ca Bay Area? If so, I have a couple of names to pass on to you. LMK
  16. That's terrific. I believe my son's tics were allergy related, both environmental & food. We eliminated his tics by boosting his immunity, desensitive him of his allergies and control his histamine, along with lifestyle change and various modalities. I live in the bay area in CA. May I get the name of your intergrative doctor at UCSF? Thx! Pat
  17. Unda numbers are widely used by NDs. Try contacting a ND in your area. If you have not used homeopathic remedies before or have much knowledge about homeopathy, I highly suggest you do your research & talk to various NDs who practices homeopathy & homeopaths before preceeding. Pat
  18. Sweet cheeks mom, So sorry for your story. I know the guilt that you must feel. I am thinking since your son has immunity issues and possible suspectiblility to certain things, the homeopathic remedies may have brought something out. So many people take homepathic remedies lightly but it is very potent & powerful & it can go very deep depending on the potency that is prescribe. According to what you described, your homeopath was not a classically trained homeopath. One of the basic principal of homeopathy is one remedy at a time, no combination remedies & w/o any
  19. socalmom, ifran & kim, thx so much for the links & info. is there a form that i need to fill out for philosophical exemption to submit to the school? pat
  20. guy 123, I took tumeric for my neck/shoulder pain and some minor finger joint pain. It didn't alleviate my pain but i experienced constipation. In TCM, tumeric can cause heat, so i am not surprise that i had issue & you have experienced some GI issues. BTW, i don't have tics. Since it is anti-inflammatory, i would think that it should not aggravate tics. Pat
  21. I live in California and just received a letter from our school district letting me know that there is a new CA law (AB354) was approved requiring all students entering into the 7th grade to have proof of a Tdap booster before starting school in the Fall of 2012. Does anyone know if i can get an exemption from this? My pediatrician has talked to me about it on our last office visit and she was not very supportive about me refusing vaccination for my son even she know's about his neurological issues! Thx for your help! Pat
