Other illnesses that PANDAS Antibodies show up in

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share this article. I am not promoting this lab and did not use this lab for testing. I have had a difficult time understanding why my son's symptoms are so different and yet these anti-neuroantibodies have shown up. The first time he had the Cunningham panel ran it could not be read as unlikly or likely. The marker was in the middle. My educated guess is that my son's body had accepted the antibodies as part of his body. The second time my son had this test was when he had a double ear infection. Both ears inner and outer, very painful, and his symptoms of tremors, vocal tics headache, scalp pain and hypersensitivity went through the roof. He could not stand sheets or blankets on him. This second test came back highly likely but this in itself does not mean that he has PANDAS but he has the antibodies in his brain. I have read bits and pieces of research that these antibodies can show up in other illness. I came across an article that pointed this out and there are references at the bottom of the page. Hopefully this will help someone else figure out why their child has these antibodies if they have had the Cunningham Panel done.

Thanks, @rachel. This was a helpful description to me for elevated (only) CaM KII, which is case for ds14. PANS NP keeps telling me that antibody detection does vary w/the timing of the test/s. She wants to retest ds14 for Lyme and co-infections now that he's been on abx treatment for 3 months - I think b/c that could've stimulated his immune response?
