How many flares?

Recommended Posts

Hello New to the group. I have DD 6 and DS 7 both showing signs of PANS/PANDAS. OCD/ RAGES to start and subsided with abx.

Wanted to know how many flares are seen from your child and how long they last (days , weeks)

Welcome! Unfortunately, there is no easy way to answer your question. While much has been learned about Pandas/Pans, there are too many variables involved that can make each case quite unique.

 

But to answer your question. I would say that the average flare can last 2 to 6 weeks. How many a child has depends on many variables as well. My son, his first year had about 4, each lasting about 5 weeks. He has received treatment, and now two years later, he has not had a big flare in 8 months.

 

It is truly a healing process of the brain/immune system, and that takes time. I used to hope that my child would be the one case that went away and never returned....but that is just not how it works.
