keeptrying Posted September 10, 2010 Report Share Posted September 10, 2010 My dd is 9 and has motor and vocal tics for almost 5 years now. I have been posting on the pandas forum a lot but decided that this forum would be beneficial for this particular question. I am not sure if my dd has pandas or lyme or mycoplasma or what. I have tried endless alternative therapies, diet eliminations, supplements, homeopathy, accupressure, applied kinesiology, muscle testing for allergies, food allergy testing (all neg), going organic, keeping a clean diet, clean house, non toxic everything...need I go on? Anyway, we are currently trying zithromax for the possibility of strep induced pandas. She had a positive strep test 4 yrs ago, was treated, then tics came out 7 months later so hard to tell. Neg aso titer at that time too. My dd's tics are off the charts now. Is it because school started 4 weeks ago, is it because she is getting at the "peak age for symptoms" as our pediatrician has said? I do not know but feel like she can not go another minute like this in public. I am wanting to call the neuro and find some meds. Is this a bad idea? Please tell me. I have heard that the catapres patch does not have many side effects. I would appreciate ANY advice on what works and what to stay away from. I am scared to death and want to make the right decision. I really need some help.. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
