  1. Thanks, my daughter is still feeling better. She is about 80 percent back to normal already. The np ran a strep throat culture, aso titer and the DNase titer. The throat culture was negative but the aso titer was high so he is officially calling it pandas. She is on 875mg of amoxicillin 3 times per day, (she is tall for her age and 100 pounds).

Some things have come up since we got the referral in January to make me think that we might be dealing with pandas instead. She has always been a very imaginative and energetic kid that tended to be a little distractible, but has always been outgoing and happy. She is suddenly miserable most of the time.
