Butterfly12 Posted August 2, 2021 Report Share Posted August 2, 2021 Hi, I'm a 17-year-old from Australia and suspect that all my conditions that I've developed since I was 14 may all be caused by PANS. I have had three sudden-onsets of symptoms, in June 2018, May 2020 and January 2021, all with various psychological and neurological symptoms which have resulted in numerous diagnoses but which have all been treatment-resistant, with medications giving terrible side effects. My first sudden-onset in 2018 is mostly in remission currently, whilst I still deal with all the symptoms from May 2020's and January 2021's. In June 2018, I experienced sudden severe social anxiety, severe generalised anxiety with 3-4 panic attacks daily, psychosis (vivid hallucinations - tactile, visual and auditory predominantly), OCD and sleep disturbances. I was diagnosed with social anxiety and generalised anxiety with a partial psychotic disorder (I was never officially diagnosed with OCD as the psychosis/hallucinations were worse and impacted my life more, also my compulsions are more subtle as many of them are mental or I can blame them on my tics or mask them making them look like another movement or behaviour). This onset is mostly in remission now, however, I still have OCD and mild social and generalised anxiety (my sleep disturbances were in remission, however, they came back in January 2021). In May 2020 I developed severe sudden onset motor and vocal tics and in January 2021, I developed frequent non-epileptic seizures (about 100 a day), sleep issues, episodic paralysis and mobility difficulties. Basically, from this, I was wondering if I have to have another sudden-onset of symptoms in order to receive treatment (and be tested diagnosed, although I know that some doctors will diagnose off of medical history), or if I can receive treatment now? And if I can get treated now, what options do I have? Any help/advice/ideas would be greatly appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
