pixiesmommy Posted September 25, 2009 Report Share Posted September 25, 2009 This really has me worried. I keep seeing that a lot of us have a connection to NC (or SC) and it has me wondering WHY and what the connection may be. After thinking on this the other night as I was going to sleep, one thing really stuck out for me, but I'm not sure if it could be accurate. Is it possible that we got a particular batch of PREVNAR vaccines that were somehow MORE likely to cause the onset of PANDAS? I was reflecting also on something that Diana said to me about herself and EAMOM and how there was an "outbreak" of PANDAS in their area around the same time. Why would this be? If there is an autoimmune component, this should NOT be the case, correct? There would have to be something environmental that a LOT of kids are exposed to (I mean, other than strep alone) that would cause the onset in a particular area at a particular time. Just speculating.... Your thoughts on this??? FYI- My daughter was vaxed in Concord, NC and was born in 9/2000, so she is 9 yrs old. Just putting that out there to see if there are any similarities w/others that we could piece together. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
