PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections) .

Consider this. Lyme is an autoimmune disease.

Consider this. Other mystery diseases such as Psychiatric, CFS, MS, FM and a dozen or so others have anecdotally responded to antibiotics, while some M.D.s have accidentally discovered in their own practice that most of these are actually misdiagnosed tick born infections. Those same infections can also come, less frequently, from mice in the house, rats, cat scratches or bites, mosquitoes and fleas.

Consider this. Lyme affects different people in different ways. It is the great deceiver. It usually looks like a different disease and is frequently misdiagnosed. Estimates are that for each 1 person correctly diagnosed and treated, there are 9 others not. And the most common symptoms include anxiety and psych symptoms that do not respond well to conventional medicines.

PANDAS and Lyme and CFS and MS and FM all have one thing in common - they are autoimmune conditions - they look similar - depending on the skill, judgement, and experience of the doctor, a misdiagnosis is possible. My doctor would be so bold as to say most of those patients are actually Lyme misdiagnosed. He says that because that's all the kind of patients he sees every day. I was one of them. WAS. :-)

The profound crippling anxiety I had, which was only helped by Zyprexa for a while, went completely gone, after 25 years of it, with a few months of Lyme related herbs and antibiotics from a doctor who had made the connection between Lyme and psychiatry. Most have not made that connection. Much less PANDAS.

I am merely thinking out loud, not really saying anything in particular. I find it curious how we have all these different names for different clusters of symptoms and we approach them all as separate distinct things and we are quite sure of it. And yet, despite being so sure, we know so little about them. We can't even say how they started or how to reverse them. We attempt to treat them from that vantage point. Interesting.

In my experience I'm not sure which is worse - anxiety or depression. I've had both singularly and I've had both at the same time. Both are straight from hell. Or in my case, straight from a tick bite I never knew happened.
