Report Please help in PANS / PANDAS (Lyme included) Posted September 9, 2012 Hi, Thank you to all of you who have responded. Sorry I did not see the posts till today as I was so busy these 2 weeks. Only today I am sitting in front of the computer. This was a difficult 2 weeks for me ....my son was bitten both by bed bugs and Ticks in one day that we were in DC. The welts he got from the bed bugs have started to go away. The bite marks from the 2 ticks are looking like 2 red dots but not expanding. I am watching them. My son is on Doxycycline 100 mg 2x day and I'll be starting flagyl tomorrow. My DAN doctor didnot know about tindamax, so he ordered flagyl. I've sent the ticks to 2 labs ... advanced laboratories and MDL (Suggested by Dr Jones office.). I'll have to wait for 2 more weeks to get the results. I'll post when I get them. Unfortunately I did not have a magnifying glass and I sent them immediately. Also I had an appointmet with my LLMD who said that we'll be treating for LYme anyways. I liked my LLMD ..he is in Vermont..we had our first appointment in June. If anyone is looking for a LLMD in that area, pm me. thanks to all of those who helped me in finding my doctor. The reason we went to the East coast is to see all the doctors there and find one that suits us. The irony is my son got tick bites there when we went for treatment. Also I had to deal with "If we brought bed bugs with our luggage" I opened the baggage and put things through out the house by the time I came to know that my son was bitten by bed bugs. I cleaned my whole house house.....I mean the whole house...washed all the clothes in hot water that itself took a whole week. Ordered matress covers and called the pest management companies....All of them were quoting anywhewre from $1500 to $3000. ....I researched a lot on bed bugs and their different treatments. Finally I settled with one company who came yesterday to treat my house with chemicals( I have been so careful not to use any chemicals in my house or yard for the last 12 years) I took everything out of the house...I mean everything. Now I have wait 2 more weeks to redo the whole process again. All this when I dont even know if we brought them with us. I am so tired. But I pray that this issue is over. I didnot dream that one small bug can cause so much trouble. as if we did not have enough on our plate. Thank you all once again and I'll post once I receive the results. Madhu.
