My son is 5. He has been having a combination of tics and OCD-like behaviors escalating since April. He has recently been having a lot of emotional lability and has been very needy to the point of wanting help with most activities of daily living. I am no stranger to autoimmune diseases, as I have Multiple Sclerosis. Red flags are going off, making me think we might be dealing with PANDAS/PANS. My husband and I are trying so hard to be compassionate and understanding with my son, but sometimes his current behavior is very disruptive. It is hard not to feel angry sometimes...Watching him go through this sudden change in personality and behavior is breaking my heart. I am a physician, but no longer practice, due to my MS. I have never seen anything like what is happening to my son. I feel roadblocked, as it is clear that there are not a lot of docs with expertise in this illness. Please PM me, if you are in Southeast MI and have the name of a good provider to help rule this in or out and possibly initiate treatment. Thank you so much.
