PANDAS/PANS

‘I hate you! I want a different mom!’ He is getting bigger, I have to physically restrain him.’: Mom says son’s childhood has been ‘violently stolen’ due to PANDAS/PANS diagnosis, ‘It’s sad, unfair, heartbreaking’

“I wrote the single hardest thing: ‘I don’t like being a parent.’ His meltdowns consist of screaming, hitting, throwing, breaking things, slamming doors, spitting, you name it. I have to restrain him. I poured my heart out, frustrated, at my wits end. Then I got a message. ‘I think your son has PANDAS/PANS. My son does, and I think you need to have him tested.’ Then the warning came: Some people don’t believe in this diagnosis.”

‘Overnight, our 15-month-old’s personality changed. A once easy-going child turned aggressive, OCD’ish.’: Mom learns of son’s PANDAS/PANS diagnosis, ‘There was ZERO doubt in my mind he had this’

“He would scream bloody murder to get in the bath tub, and became obsessed with wearing ‘soft’ clothes. It was like walking on eggshells since an explosion could happen at any moment for no reason. I chalked it up to him being a toddler, with a new baby brother and all the changes military life brings. Over time, I knew this was not the case.”
