When my son was dealing with his second bout of strep and PANDAS, he did not eat for 3 or more days. I have no idea why. He wouldn't tell me. This was while he was still on antibiotics for a +strep test. My neurologist prescribed steroids for him and I believe after day 3 he started to show improvement. But I think he only did the steroids becasue of the timeline.


With my son, he was 5. I sat him on my lap and spoon fed him. That's how bad it got. Sounds so sad, but I knew he needed the nourishment. At first , he refused and just sat there like a zombie. I touched the spoon to his mouth and after a few tries, HE ATE! I fed him applesauce and yogurt until he began feeding himself again. Then, when he began to eat, he refused warm food and any food that someone else tounched it needed to be single serving things.


So, what I am saying is if he won't eat and won't tell you why, explore the possibilities. Now, my son is fine with all food. It just took time and a lot of patience.
