PANS Testing and Bloodwork

Recommended Posts

My son is 15 and has been sick with Neuropsychiatric symptoms and psychosis for two years. We have been to many doctors from pediatricians , neurologists, infectious disease to psychiatrist. His  psych meds are not working  and he has had numerous tests  and bloodwork done which have all come back normal.  Any advice on what tests or bloodwork can be done that focus on PANS  so he can be properly diagnosed and treated.

The only test that showed up abnormal for my child was Streptoccocus Pneumoniae. Have you tried to see a specialist in PANDAS/PANS? He/she may know better how to interpret the blood work in light of the symptoms. I wish you the best of luck for your son. God Bless.

I am working on getting my Insurance to approve a visit to a clinic in Tuscon. Doctors don't believe Strep is to blame because his titers are low. They feel it's depression 🙄 Thank you for the blessing❤️
