Hi - my 12-year old daughter has PANS, I believe. Seeing PANS/PANDAS neurologist in northern NJ. Very elevated titers for myco (1400) and slightly for strep. Treating with Amoxicillin AND Zithromax. Has tics which may have actually increased since being on antibiotics (only about 9 days though). She will not take pills, tried Biaxin liquid but will not tolerate so switched to Zithro. Also has increased anxiety and has had one rage since on meds. Used to take Omega3 (Nordic Naturals with DHA for kids) , then stopped, and recently started again. Taking probiotic too. Her diet is GF and mostly dairy free but she is a picky eater and so has a lot of carbs. Trying to get her off sugar and carbs but taking the meds is easier when she has something sweet (nutella is her favorite chaser, also soy choc milk mixed with plain almond milk). Questions: Does anyone have any ideas/thoughts on antibiotics she is taking? Seen an increase in tics/anxiety/rages on these drugs? Read some kids have increased tics with Omega3 - maybe stop that? Any luck with steroids? Does anyone report ANY relief from just doing nothing - no meds, no discussion, just ignoring tics? All my daughter's anxieties and tics got 10x worse once I actually started looking into it and treating it. Started therapy. But scared to not treat myco and strep after reading Saving Sammy and online info. Any advice would be so helpful. Thank you. Bless you all for this forum and for your information.
