In this 20-min video of a recent Facebook live stream, Dr. Zendi Moldenhauer and Lori DiBartolo discuss Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS/PANDAS) - the symptoms, treatment options, and how you can help raise awareness of this serious condition.
Your child's sudden changes in behavior could be more than just a phase.
Are they experiencing:
- Unexplained rages?
- Opposition to authority?
- Declining school performance?
- Intense anxiety or OCD behaviors?
- Unusual irritability or aggression?
- ADHD-like symptoms?
- Food aversions or sensory issues?
- Dramatic mood swings?
- Frequent urinary accidents?
- Disturbing verbal or motor tics?
- Sleep problems that seem endless?
These aren't just random issues; they could be signs of Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS) or Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS) — complex conditions often misinterpreted and misdiagnosed, shadowing the lives of affected children and their families.
The Journey to a Diagnosis
The path to understanding your child's condition is fraught with confusion, often involving multiple specialists and a maze of misdiagnoses. With as many as 1 in 200 children affected, the urgency for awareness and correct treatment is paramount.
The Hidden Battle: When the Immune System Attacks the Brain
PANS/PANDAS isn't a straightforward psychological disorder; it's an autoimmune response gone awry, leading to brain inflammation and a host of severe symptoms mistaken for ADHD, OCD, and even Bipolar Disorder.
The Misunderstood Challenges of PANS/PANDAS
Flares of symptoms can turn daily life into a rollercoaster. But it's not just the child who suffers — parents often face unfair criticism and the stigma of "bad parenting." The reality is, these children are fighting an internal battle that needs medical intervention, not just stricter discipline.
Genetics, Detox, and Misdiagnosis
A closer look often reveals a genetic predisposition that's compounded by detox challenges and environmental factors, such as heavy metal exposure. Is there a link to autoimmune disorders in the family history?
