  1. Ok, last post. In January I believe I had strep throat, though I was never tested. Since then I've had recurring bouts of tinnitus and ear pain/itch, trouble breathing through nose, and sometimes (less frequently, though right now I have it) throat pain and/or slight itch. I didn't have a strict antibiotic treatment for PANDAS when I was a teenager, but OCD symptoms are basically non existent anymore and I;m about to start antipsychotics to deal with residual psychotic symptoms and anxiety. The problem is I'm not sure why I'm having these symptoms. I've checked anti D-Nasa B titer
  2. Ok, so I don't really have pandas anymore, but I remember I had this then and i still have it know. Sometimes when I try to sleep I find the bed really uncomfortable but even when I move it still bothers me. It's not only the bed, its also my clothes and everything I touch. Does anybody know what this is? Also, since the PANDAS started, I usually hold my throat whenever anxiety kicks in, because it starts to feel strange. Right now writing this I have the urge to hold it. When PANDAS started I also watched a tv show where a villain cut peoples throat open, but wanted to know i
  3. I stopped taking sertraline, zyprexa and antibiotics after taking them for 3 years. I didn't follow a strict medication treatment, but I barely have PANDAS symptoms anymore (some psychotic symptoms and sometimes when sleeping my bed really bothers me). I've never been able to masturbate because nothing happens or I feel pain and I've never had a wet dream either. I know its a long shot someone here will help me since I know most people in the forum are probably focused on helping kids and I've never seen sexual problems arise from this, but it would really help if anyone knew what it mig
  4. Thanks for responding, Well, yeah a big part of it is depersonalization, but that feeling went hand in hand with the delusion that nothing was really real. I do have a grasp on reality, but I also have strong skepticism and doubts about it. I know these types of disorders work on a spectrum so people with psychosis don't necessarily hallucinate or have strong delusions. The problem is that while I know PANDAS and anxiety disorders can cause psychotic symptoms, I also now know it can happen the other way around. While I used to be sure i had PANS, I started having doubts because th
  5. Most people with OCD start with their obsessions because of magical thinking. Some might believe that if they don't wash their hands someone will die. That's the gist of it. Other people with OCD have a just right reason for doing things. They just feel wrong and might start to feel anxiety. For me it was a mixture of both. There was some magical thinking but I couldn't quite pinpoint what it was, and I did a lot of the "rituals' because it just didn't feel right. Now that i know I have psychosis, I realize that my logic for starting the "rituals" was because the world didn't feel real. Everyt
  6. When i was 11 I got rapid onset OCD, the symptoms more closely relating PANDAS/PANS. It got really bad and I was committed into a hospital. At 15, I started taking antibiotics, Sertraline, and Olanzapine, and as expected, the OCD decreased. The problem is I was never properly diagnosed, and when i turned 18 I stopped taking medication (with doctors approval). After a while, psychotic symptoms returned, and after seeing various neuropsychologists, I was diagnosed with Psychosis. I know PANDAS and OCD in general can cause Psychotic symptoms, but after a couple sessions with my doctor, I realized
