  1. ALSO NEED SO. CAL DOCTOR: We are brand new to the PANS or PANDAS idea and are looking for a PANS or PANDAS dr. in So. Cal. My daughter had acute onset symptoms of anxiety, OCD and ODD (which we didn't immediately identify) two years ago at age 14. She went into screaming rages, insisted on sleeping with us in our room, didn't want to ever be alone, and had extreme behaviors incl. jumping out of a moving car. We thought it was extreme teen rebellious behavior. We started w/ CBT and In the chance that something neurological was going on, and that it was possibly food related, we instituted the Feingold diet which removes all artificial colors, artificial flavors, and artificial preservatives (primarily BHT, TBHQ, and BHA). It also decreases the amount of salicylates taken in from whole foods. We also found that she reacted strongly food high in oxalates. The CBT and dietary changes have helped esp. w/ the ODD but she's still struggling w/ focus and OCD behaviors. We really need to get to the bottom of this if possible. It's crippled her high school path completely. We're looking into Dr. K in Irvine, but I'd like to know if there are any others. PM is fine. Thank you for any suggestions.
