  1. Thanks everyone! I've just been really busy these last few days with doctors appointments and everything. I didn't get an antibiotic or steroid during the surgery. The surgeon was pretty difficult to deal with. I don't think anything I could have told him would have gotten me antibiotics. The tonsils were not cultured. I asked him to culture them but he wouldn't do it. Kind of a standoffish person. However, on the bright side of things my therapist set me up for a strep titer. Hopefully I will get that somewhere around June 6th. If my titer is elevated she said that many of her patients have h
  2. I wish I could say that all of my symptoms were resolved after the tonsillectomy but that would be a lie. To be honest, I actually seem worse. :/ This is day 9 of post op and so far I'm discouraged! My anxiety and OCD are at an all time high but I try to attribute that to the fact that I'm in a lot of physical pain at the moment. For those of you who didn't read my first post, I just recently had my tonsils removed due to reoccurring strep. I was on Penicillin and then Augmentin before the surgery. I asked for antibiotics post op but the ENT wouldn't prescribe them because he said it looked as
  3. This is my 5th day on Augmentin. I've never tried zithromax but I'll remember it if the Augmentin doesn't seem to do anything. I actually was taking a probiotic but I felt worse each time that I took it. I looked on the back of the bottle and the probiotic contained a strain of strep, streptococcus thermophilus. I researched it a little and although streptococcus thermophilus is considered a positive bacteria,I just don't want to go anywhere near something with the word streptococcus in it. I'm tired of strep! So I am staying away from that particular probiotic but I will look into the one tha
  4. I'll admit, I'm a little bit afraid of the tricylics so I've never tried Clomipramine. I will consider it though. As of tomorrow I am probably going off of the Prozac and onto Lexapro. I'm about to the point where I'll try anything. Rowingmom, I think with this next generation of grads we will start to see a lot more acceptance of infection related psychological illnesses. If I can figure some of these connections out for myself I will be sure to make it known! There is so much about psychological health that has yet to be discovered.
  5. Thank you everyone! Worrieddadnmom, my OCD episodes are accompanied by twitching. I don't have any verbal tics but I do have muscle spasms. The more anxious I get, the worse the twitches get! However, my condition is mostly mental. I just worry and obsess about pretty much anything. I have had compulsions in the past though. Many, many panic attacks. Growing up I had terrible separation anxiety. I absolutely could not sleep alone! My first OCD episode occurred at age four when I became afraid to eat. I thought that I would choke on everything! As of now, I'm not afraid to eat but I'm incredibl
  6. I'm new to this forum and to PANS/PANDAS in general. I'm really just looking for any advice from anyone who has firsthand experience with this. I don't even know where to start! I'm still searching for the answers. My OCD appeared suddenly at age 4. My symptoms have waxed and waned from mild to severe over the years and I am now 19. At times my OCD would go into recession for entire years. I've just been reading all of the stories on here and there is so much that I can relate to! I know that as of now PAN/PANDAS doesn't extend to adults. However, just looking back on the time line of my life
