  1. DD will sit and pick the skin on her lips until they bleed.. Her newest tic is finger combing her hair, not a little, but to the point she's making it fall out. But her tics are mild compared to the big compulsions that literally consume her 24/7
  2. I'll definitely see about getting DD's sinuses looked at again, her former immunologist dismissed it as no big deal because they aren't debilitating but they've been bothersome long enough to justify further testing. Best of luck with the rinse, if I've learned anything from PANDAS it's always choose hope I've read a couple of people say IVIG helped relieve everything but the OCD, which unfortunately for DD is her biggest symptom.

  5. Hi, new to the forum but have been observing for a few months. I'm in desperate need of any answers possible. My DD first started having severe OCD symptoms at the age of 7 (she's 17 now). I had no idea what caused it or what PANDAS was. Through the years she has been on every SSRI imaginable (which had very little - if any - effect on her OCD symptoms and gave her suicidal thoughts) , been through ERP and CBT, hospitalized, you name it...
