Our adult PANS dd is having auditory and visual hallucinations, ONLY at night, and ONLY in her lower level bedroom. These did not occur in our previous home. Our current home had very high levels of radon when we purchased it, but a mitigation system was installed. We are in the process of having it checked to see if it is working properly. So, I know hallucinations can be a part of PANDAS/PANS, but her's are ONLY at night, and have only been in this home and only in the lower level. Has anyone else had something similar going on? We've ruled out her sleep meds, as it occurs with different kinds, and usually the hallucinations don't happen until early morning. She's the "canary in a coalmine"...she has the dreaded HLA genes, so I'm wondering about other toxins. We're pretty sure there is no mold down there, as mold usually causes her migraines and vomiting, for days, and this is not occurring. Anyone else dealing with PANDAS/PANS in a high radon area?
FASCINATING case study about a 16 yr. old boy presenting with neuropsych symptoms (severe, with hallucinations) All resolved with H. Pylori treatment and B12 injections. For those of you (like us) with the MTHFR C6677T snp, he had it also, and the psychiatrist noted that that mutation may have been why his symptoms presented differently than normal B12 deficiency signs. Also of note - if we have malabsorption issues, it's important to "bypass the pesky gut". (injections or sublingual...) At least until we can find out what types of gut problems we have, and FIX them! http://evolutionarypsychiatry.blogspot.com/2012/11/b12-deficiency-and-psychosis-case-study.html
