Text should not be defamatory, harsh, accusatory, intimidating, slanderous, an invasive of a person's privacy, or violate any law. Doing so may lead to you being banned (and your service provider may be informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator, and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move, or close any topic at any time should they see fit.

  1. I'm reading alot about dr h. f. in manhatten. I would like to network with some parents that have seen her/are using her. I took my son there and have some questions. Thanks
  2. Cycles of symptoms

    typical scenario he has been going to school getting A's for 25 days he comes home and reviews schoolwork with dad, dad will tell me he wasn't on top of his game as far as comprehension and tell me something might be looming, he'll then throw something if I criticize him (not in character) and me and dad will exchange worried glances... he will then go to bed but come out 2-3 times to draw a picture, or roam... and then go to bed and wake up as though he is in a fod with limited interaction, if any then at a preschool level... he'll have a different voice and get agitated quickly, rage a bit, get very sensory about his clothing, he'll complain his shoes are too tight and rage that he needs new ones right now and then try on every shoe in the store only to not find a pair that 'fits' - he will eat cheerios for breakfast which he wouldn't touch any other week of the year....this behavior will last a week and then suddenly he will pop back to himself in middle of dinner or reading... with his normal facial expressions, voice, personality... he will remember incidence that occurred but deny anything weird about it...for example his shoes fit fine, he didn't buy new ones bec nothing in the store was his size...he missed his cousins birthday party because "it was too far".... (untrue) either denying the episode or not recalling it at all... no purple eyes he will be healthy and well, cute for another 28 days only to have this happen again...
  3. Medical Detective?

    were also dealing with a clockwork cycle of symptoms, from what I tell only brain fog/ocd/sensory more than physical but I can't understand the cycles.. noone else can either!!
  4. PANDAS MD near New York

    Dr. Schulman is fantastic. You won't regret meeting her. She hasn't treated us but we had a consult with her and were very impressed. Do you have the list of bloodwork she requests? I'd love to see it.
