We are trying to determine if my ds14's sudden onset OCD is Pandas or Pans, since it seemed to have been triggered by the flu. So after two weeks of Augmentin, he gradually got worse and now he is on day 4 of prednisone, and he is much worse! What does this mean? All of his strep titers and immune tests are normal, too. Does this mean our only recourse is Exposure Response therapy?
My son was 10 in 2010 and got the flu; he was given Tamiflu and within the week he was having night terrors. Soon after that, he developed OCD. I don't know if the flu virus triggered PANS, or if the Tamiflu triggered everything, but I will never let my children ever take Tamiflu again.
