  1. I just read another post which mentioned dealing or not not dealing well with their child's tic. I admit, I don't believe I deal very well and wish I could find a more positive outlook. So, if anyone is interested in posting their thoughts positive or not... Maybe it would give some of us struggling parents a different perspective. thx
  2. yes, thank you. Actually on hold now with my fingers crossed hoping they still have the sample. P.Mom, they no longer have the blood. I understand that PANDA's is complicated for various reasons. Seeing that his ASO Titre was high is it necessary to get the AntiDNAase B done as well?
  3. yes, thank you. Actually on hold now with my fingers crossed hoping they still have the sample.
  4. Vanessa..... As you probably read..that ASO is high and indicative of a strep infection (diagnosed or not)...but, what I reaaly wanted to tell you is that the other test you mentioned is called an Anti-double stranded DNA test....it is NOT the test you should have done to test for strep antibodies....that test is called the AntiDNAase B titer.....they are easily confused...make sure you get the correct one. Yes! i noticed that too and i was thinking it didn't look right. Thats so frustrating I know it was written correctly in the req' so the lab totally made a mistake.
  5. So, long story short. My 8 yr old son started ticcing when he was 5 1\2. I usually read the tourettes board and i apologize if the answer to my question is somewhere in previous posts. Does anyone have any idea how to read this and or what it means? For his blood Anti-ds DNA 37.2 (up to 200.0) IU/ml and his ASO titre 242 HI (should be < 65) IU/ml. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you Vanessa
  6. Hi Mylittleangle I PM'd you a few days wondering if you could send me the info for the TMJ specialist in our city. Stms i think my PM's dont go through. thx!
  7. I too have been curious about stem cells. I haven't come across stem cells for tics though.
  8. Is oscilloccocinum a homeopathic remedy? thx
  9. I had a friend of mine pass the case study and a video on to her dentist. I believe he is a craniodontist...in Canada. He said he has known Dr. Stacks for many years and has had some course with him. He is world renowned about his approaches to TMJ and overall health has witnessed many videos about the improvement his patients have had. I also spoke breifly to the neuroscientist. He said the paper did grab his attention and that the neurophysiology behind it is accurate. I am still waiting to hear back from neuroanatomy prof from the chiropractic college.
  10. mylittleangel i am sorry to hear this. i dont know if this helps and i dont know how severe your sons tics are but what we do sometimes in between all of the different alternatives we try, we take a Break... In the end i just want my boy to be a little boy and not always have the focus on his tics. that might mean not saying "STOP, you cant eat THAT!". It also means for me taking a break from searching and looking for answers. That way we can focus on family time and not just tics. Again, i am sorry about that. I dont think this means to give up hope on this theory but unfortunately it
  11. you might consider supplementing Ca, Mg, Vit D supplement. A side note to consider, i was off dairy and using all the box alternatives..almond, rice even a quinoa\rice mix. What I realized is unless it is a cardbord milk container the box containers that do not have to be refrigerated are lined with plastic. Not good if you are trying to avoid BPA's... i went back to milk, i guess its a trade off.
  12. mylittleangel before considering having the device permantely inserted. Your son is still young in terms of his jaw growth according to this theory. Maybe you could ask Dr. Sims at your next visit what he thinks about giving your son time to mature a bit so he is more aware and can consciously bite down correctly.
  13. Faith i think you are awsome for considering all those questions. I have to agree that they are questions that are important and most certainly the answers are unknown, most likely because there is no research. What would happen if we "messed" around with the jaw? I also wanted to let those interested know that the pilot study article is going to be reviewed by an anatomy and neuroanatomy prof at the chiropractic college in my city. He is a chiropractor,BSc, Msc and a Phd. He taught me and he is outstanding in his fields. He said he would get back some time next week. As well the paper
  14. ok...i have decided to send the Pilot Study to as many professionals i have at my disposal. i was initially going to wait before posting them until i could compile everyones opinions however, it seems as though decisions on whether to book appointments are being made quickly... Below is the opinion from a periodontist who is also a full time prof at the university (Dentistry) where i live. Needless to say, i think i cried all day last week after reading his take on the paper. i am sorry if it upsets anyone but i think its important for us to have a much knowledge as possible. if i recie
