  1. Hi All, I have a quick question regarding anorexia presenting as a possible symptom of Pans/Pandas. My anorexia appears to be non-specific, i.e not fuelled by any underlying psychological motive. Is this presentation typical of Pandas/pans? I've heard of the classic type associated with body image distortion - nervosa. There is also a type characterised by a "fear of choking" which I'm sure is relevant in the context of OCD. But for me there seems to be no underlying reason, it's as plain as simply going off my food. It sounds non-sensical; if anything I have a fear of looking too thin. a
  2. Hello, all. I joined the forum today and skimmed messages for our issue. I have a 17 yo daughter who is positive for lyme, bartonella, and babeisia. She is in treatment for those as of April and also has an eating disorder that she began treatment for in September of 2016. I am desperate to connect with anyone who has had the two illnesses as her ed psychiatrist does not believe that she has the tick infections and she is herxing bad (increased eating disorder and other symptoms.) Decreasing the antibx will not stop the restriction cycly. Her llmd does not fully understand the eating
  3. Our 12 year old son was just diagnosed with PANDAS/PANS after being diagnosed with anorexia this summer (the anorexia was a symptom of the pandas, we learned). We discovered that it was not "just" anorexia because as the re-feeding process was underway without much resistance from him, a whole host of other symptoms arose leading to this diagnosis. His primary symptoms now are extreme anxiety/mood swings/rage in addition to some physical symptoms that the doctors have observed. Has anyone else had their child's diagnosis begin with anorexia and/or have experience with extreme episodes of ra
  4. Hello, my 8 year old son, mild/controlled pandas for 4 years, on August 6th had 3 pins (like nails) were yanked out of his healing humerus (had broken upper arm bone 3 weeks prior from monkey bars fall) by ped orthopedic surgeon. He was sedated with nitrous oxide and versed. He takes prophylactic augmentin daily and a weekly Zithromax dose for pandas. The next day he began a new and severe flare with food refusal. Working with dr. T. Many labs drawn, changed to cefdinir and Zithromax daily, no help. Now will try valtrex and biaxin. Forcing son to eat/drink, he lost 5 pounds, now 70 pds.
  5. Hello! Long time lurker, first time poster, mom to a 6.5 y/o PANDAS boy with a question about food restriction/anorexia. I've read a lot here (esp from beerae22 who seems to have been on a similar journey with her DD) and it's been soooo reassuring to know that we're not the only ones out there dealing with this. In a nutshell, DS had an abrupt onset of typical PANDAS symptoms in February 2014. With prompt antibiotic treatment (mostly Rocephin injections - he would take nothing by mouth), most symptoms went away (or decreased so that his level of functioning was no longer greatly impa
  6. Hi there, I am a 23 year old female. I've been doing quite a bit of reasearch on PANDAS lately, and everything is just pointing to it. I developed a sudden onset of severe OCD at the age of 10, followed by a sudden onset of Anorexia at age 15. I also had PLMD at age 16. And at age 21, I started getting tic like sypmtoms and body movements (I'm not really sure if they were present when I was younger as well). As a child, I was in the doctor's office almost every month getting a throat culture for strep or had some sort of ear infection. I was sick quite often as a child. I even remember having
  7. I went to a support group for woman with children that have health issues. They discussed that Round-UP and GMO's not only chelate magnesium creating deficiencies but also zinc and believe that zinc supports strong sperm and there may be a link to lower zinc and difficulty conceiving. Isn't low zinc implicated in Anorexia and OCD? What are your thoughts? Our Dr doesn't supplement. I understand he has seen benefits and harm just like some here have both positive and negative reactions. I am sure it needs to be based on your 23 and me but thought I would ask.
