  1. 9 year old daughter is suspected to have PANS. About 2 years ago she lost her ability to write and do math and started having anxiety. We've since been on a path to determine why a healthy, A+ student all of a sudden develops a learning disability. We're in the testing phase where we are trying to get to the bottom of the cause. We are working with a Dr with no experience with PANS and we have a naturopath as well. Recent blood work came back with her ASOT at 350 and her IGE at 2600, plus deficiency in vitamin d. Her Dr. called me to tell me to put her on Vitamin D but said nothing about the high ASOT and IGE. I only noticed it when I asked for the report. I don't know much about ASO and IGE and whether I should be concerned about those levels. Should I be pushing for them to put her on antibiotics? I have no recollection of my daughter ever having physical symptoms of strep, but I know that not all people have symptoms. Any ideas?
  2. I'm hoping some of you can weigh in on this. Our 11 year old dd was first diagnosed in Oct 2014 following sudden and severe onset of separation anxiety and mild ticing. She has been on home tutoring the entire school year as we wait for her symptoms to improve. Initially the only positive test was for mycoplasma but as we visited additional docs and had more testing other issues emerged. Dr Ts testing revealed high Coxsakie B IgG titres and high IgE titres. Follow up testing revealed no allergies or parasites, the typical cause of elevated IgE. After 2 months of Zithromax, 1 month of Biaxin, and 2 weeks of Levaquin along with a large variety of supplements we saw no improvement and decided to get another perspective...though Dr T was great and we will likely seek his opinion again in the future. In the meantime we are now seeing Dr B in the Hudson Valley who is much closer to home and has been fantastic. Thinking we should have seen some progress he ordered up even more tests. Despite previous negative Lyme tests (Elisa and Labcorp) she is positive on the Igenex test and also came back positive for Anti-DNase B Strep antibodies and high HHV 6 antibodies. Dr B changed her to minocycline for the Mycoplasma and added Ceftin for the Lyme. What is especially confounding is that she is essentially physically asymptomatic with just occasional mild headaches and mild lethargy. Meanwhile her psychiatric symptoms have been pretty severe. She seems to have an immune system that is just not functioning properly. If anyone has dealt with PANS/PANDAS with multifaceted triggers I'd love to hear about your experience, your doctors theories, and treatment options....thanks!
