DID YOU KNOW: . . . . .
It's not new but it may be new to you . . . . compliments of Priscilla Faulkner, LPC:
I have a nephew who has been diagnosed with PANDAS. He was originally thought to have a severe anxiety disorder and placed inpatient.
I am writing you as a professional who would like to get the message to other clinicians in the State about this disorder which has been overlooked. I believe it is vital as a professional to inform other professionals when new diagnosis arise that could potentially be misdiagnosed. I would like to present this at a conference as well as inform all clinicians in the State of Arkansas. This will help provide the best care for our clients.
PANDAS: Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections
Children with PANDAS often experience one or more of the following symptoms in conjunction with their OCD and/or tics:
· ADHD symptoms (hyperactivity, inattention, fidgety)
· Separation anxiety (child is "clingy" and has difficulty separating from his/her caregivers; for example, the child may not want to be in a different room in the house from his/her parents)
· Mood changes (irritability, sadness, emotional lability)
· Sleep disturbance
· Night-time bed wetting and/or day-time urinary frequency
· Fine/gross motor changes (e.g., changes in handwriting)
· Joint pains.
