My name is Dr Michael Wetzler. I am a private GP in Stamford Hill North London. A lady in the area had children with Pandas treated with great success and has spread the word locally so many people are coming to visit. There has been discussion locally with a paediatrician who is not keen for gps to give azithromycin or coamoxiclav just on the basis of significant symptoms and a high asot. I would really appreciate a communication with Dr Ubhi about this

Hi my daughter is 4 years old nearly 5 and she has suffered with tonsillitis numerous times over the years. Over the past few months she has been different behavioral problems, aggressive, seperation anxiety, has to be dragged into school most days, sleep disturbances and extreme fatigue. She cannot walk far and even won't join in in PE. She wakes most nights with sore legs, ankles and feet. We are currently waiting on a referral for ENT as her hearing seems to also have declined. Do you think this could be PANDAS? Will the GP listen if I suggest it?

Please help...im so confused.my daughter is 17...she has a history of dyslexia with traits of ADHD.Tics run in the family and she has been through phases where she's done little things like humming noises and touching the side of her mouth with her tongue.when I've asked why she does that she just said she has to. She gets high highs and is very impulsive but then gets ow lows..whenever I speak to someone she's either too young too old.not bad enough or just a teenager!!! This week she became really ill.temp of over 39 shivering and pain allover..I was beside myself...told at a n e to g home take paracetamol stay in bed.i was later called to say she had streptococcal group A bacteria from a swab off her infected belly. Utton piercing and to go straight to A n E for fluoxocilin. 2 tablets 4 times a day.she started with a sore throat and couldn't swallow.After 3ots of tablets she went strange..she couldn't sleep.her head was rushing she was having bad thoughts n said she felt like she wasn't real.scared I went.back to A n E worried was it sepsis from the infection or the antibiotics t ics. She broke down to the triage nurse.she told them everything and he informed us we would see a MH nurse...7 hours later mia saw the original Dr who wouldn't let me in the room...after spending approx 3 minutes with mia she hadn't given the antibiotics long enough to work she was 17 and proberbly a bit depressed .go home n carry on with the fluoxocilin...I could not talk to him as he had moved onto the next patient...Terrible!!!! I drove straight to our gp and made an appointment for Wednesday.she is now just very sleepy with a very sore throat.ive told the gp everything but I don't know what to do.do I change the antibiotics? Do I carry on to clear the infection...was it these that made her have this episode or did they just heighten a pre existing condition? Does she have bi polar? How do I get help and not just made to feel like a dramatic mother??? Please please help Julie Bennison

Hi. My son had rapid onset of OCD, behavioural changes, severe low mood and epileptic type episodes. He also became irritable, tired, obstructive and kept saying he felt empty and wanted to die. This started after a chesty cough and sore throat for which he was then given steroids. This is when it all began. Drs have put this down to anxiety - hahaha! They also put it down to the steroids. Don’t think so. He now complains of not feeling real and he says things look different. He has headaches and his behaviour has improved somewhat but he still has OCD with food and health. No one has offered me a proper explanation as to why my son has changed overnight!! I think it’s PANDAs. Please, please can you help me make my 12 year old well again.

At our wits end with our poor 6 year old daughters sudden health decline. First was the sudden severe ‘head banging’ violent tics then feeling really unwell screaming in pain with stomach ache and joint pain leaving her unable to walk very far. On a part time time table at school due to how poorly she’s been and they’ve seen regression in ability and handwriting. The anxiety is so bad that she has to be with someone at all times and is heavily supported by the teaching staff when she does make it to school. The list goes on, racing heart beat, cries saying she can’t swallow, hands going into funny spasms, feet give way, she moves in a jerky manner a lot of the time finding it hard to sit still, can’t sleep properly, says she can’t live like this anymore! :( Neurologist says it could be PANDAS as her ASOT >800 but there’s nothing he can do to make things better and there’s no test to diagnose this condition. Now looking to find a doctor / neurologist who can help why is this so difficult :(

HI Sarah, AF is very unusual in this age group. This will need a full work up by the cardiologists including a metabolic work up. I hope you get your son better, Dr Tim

My now grown up son Matthew was diagnosed with PANDAS at Boston children’s hospital aged 3. He was typical of the symptoms. He had a normal echocardiogram at that time Last night he was rushed to hospital with chest pain. Apparently the ECG shows atrial fibrillation He is waiting to see a cardiologist I worked in medicine for years and I think it’s important the specialist is aware of the PANDAS He is 25 now. Do you have any advice. He has outgrown the tics and OCD

Hi my daughter is currently very unwell in a tier 4 Camhs bed in Potters Bar. If I pay for a video consultation with her psychiatrist can I also join the call from home. As I am not allowed onto the unit at present ? Thank you. My daughter is called Rose Grady and her story has been in Herts live.

Go back and beg for antibiotics- amoxicillin- not penicillin- ask them if they don’t believe you, to pretend you came in with a chest infection and let you try them- her symptoms will either subside or not. If they do- you’re onto something. If they don’t, it may be something else. Do not be put off, demand to speak to someone else. Good luck
