Hello I am 19 years old and I had a bout of pandas when I was 5 years old. I overcame it in 3 months with antibiotics and have been fine up until this summer. At the end of July I was bitten by a palmetto bug/water bug. A few days later I developed a rash, but tested negative for everything, strep and Lyme included. I was put on doxycycline and had a reaction to that. Given steroids and the rash dissipated, but shortly after I took a turn for the worse. I have developed depression, anxiety, and some OCD, where I am obsessing on my health and every little body abnormality.
Anyways in late August the area I was bitten in developed a puss filled bump and I took some 2 year old Keflex, it almost took care of it but not entirely. I gave up I. The Keflex by 10 days and chalked it up as not being pandas. However I went to my doctor for the anxiety medication and my mother insisted on a strep test, even though I had no symptoms. The dr was stunned as it came back positive and he prescribed me 875 mg amoxicillin for 30 days and a penicillin shot. This was 4 days ago and I have seen virtually no improvement. I am having these obsessions, constant muscle trembling and a weird sensation above my left eye. I also have this feeling that I am not getting enough air, but I am. Could this be pandas? I doubted bearing my age, but I have a strep infection. If it is pandas what should I do? Also I wanted to point out that since I started the amoxicillin, this a deep abscess I've had in my neck for a few years now has developed a head. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
