Doctor Suggestion?

I am very new to this, but I am sure I am in the right place asking you for guidance. My 7 year old daughter started abruptly with pronounced tics a week ago. A friend who explores alternative therapies clued me into the strep link so I asked my doctor to test her titres. Although she is healthy and had no strep that we know of, her titres are elevated. Despite that, the doctor doesn't want to treat her saying he'd rather sit and wait. He seems happy to have directed us to a psychologist who will help her deal with stress. I feel confident something medical is going on. Can any of you recommend a course of action, or better yet, a pediatrician or family doctor in the Boston- metro west area who will be open and available to exploring the strep/tic connection. I feel like I'm minutes away from running to the ER at Children's just to get some answers. Thanks for any insight.

Welcome Rachel.

 

If you haven't already, I would try looking at the Finding Medical Help topic at the top of the forum. Here's the direct link: http://www.latitudes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=565 There's 3 different website links on that topic that have a listing of doctors who would most likely be able to help you.

 

We also have a PANDAS forum now, so here's that link: http://www.latitudes.org/forums/index.php?showforum=17

 

I don't have PANDAS so I don't have any suggestions on strep, but there's many others here and on the PANDAS forum that will be able to give you suggestions.
