  1. Just wanna add this. Its the lyme titer. Bmpa 39 is positive. Isn‘t this band 39 and very lyme specific? The text below says that fresh lyme disease cant be excluded. Longer existing, clinically significant infection highly unlikely. Recommendation: if there are specific clinic signs ( erythems migrans/ multiple erythema, Bannwarth Syndrome) there is therapy indication needed without distinct serology. Any ideas on that? I am 99,9 % sure I wasnt bitten by a tick in the 8 years or so..
  2. The things is I know I had strep a multiple times growing up, don't really know if it was treated with antibiotics, if so, the course was very short every time. The last time I definitely had strep was 5 years ago when I suffered from a severe Pharyngitis. I was treated with antibiotics for a few days, looking back I can't tell if my OCD got better in those few days. 6 years ago I suffered from myocarditis (heart muscle inflammation) and was also treated with antibiotics for, don't really know, maybe 10 days. So I guess it isn't that strange that my titres were low.. Again, maybe I suffe
  3. I take all your advice to my heart, thanks again! Just one question left. My ASO-titers were low, <20. I know that they don't rule out anything. But I really don't understand why they should be elevated if I have developed Pandas in my early childhood, later on probably had some flares and now haven't had an acut strep infection in the last months or so. Isn't it totally normal that it should be low in this case? That's why I don't understand why all those test should point towards anything if I haven't suffered a flare in, let's say, the last 6 months? Or are those antibodies perman
  4. MomWithOCDSon, Again, I am so thankful for you and your advice. I guess I portrayed the topic quite accurately to the doc and told him that meds only help to a certain extent, to keep the OCD at bay. I get the gist of what you are saying and I want to keep the focus on the physical symptoms. The doctors research is about" Psychoneuroimmunology, schizophrenia, depression, movement disorders, Tourette research, global mental health" Today, I visited the house doctor but he told me those tests are way too expensive and outlandish for such a small office and that I should see a neurologi
  5. MomWithOCDSon, I am so dearly thankful for all your insights! I finally found someone in Germany who seems to be pretty knowledged in Pandas and has also given a lecture about the topic. He lives pretty far away from where I live so I contacted him and decribed my situation to him. He answered. This is the translation of his email: Hello, Sascha, First, there is a more precise diagnostic needed, at the family doctor at a specialist. I suggest to undertake some investigations. These are the following: Blood sampling and determination of ASO, AntiDnase, CRP, iron, ferritin, copper, ce
  6. MomWithOCDSon, thank you so much for you response! So sorry for the things your son went through So happy that he's in such a good place now! Problem is that I live in Germany and basically no neurologist/psychiatrist know anything about this condition here... It's horrible.. Could you give me any tips how I should approach the topic? Any blood tests that can give me hints if I had it? Sascha
  7. Hey, folks. First of all, I want to excuse my english. I'm a german fellow Maybe I will ramble a little bit but I hope that you will get the gist. I'm a 25 years old male from Germany who has suffered from OCD since I was approximately 3-4 years old. Basically my first memories evolve OCD. Sounds not untypical doesn't it? The reason I'm worried and want your opinion on my case is the very early onset of the OCD. I have read that OCD CAN start very early. But looking back, I wonder if OCD alone can really be that aggressive and start that early on. Furthermore, I'm aware that I had a
