Speaking of which why don't you see if you can repost this on http://jeffsaddmind.com/ - its an interesting site and could use this info. Once again - very valuable info. I haven't yet seen anything I disagree with, but I probably will go over it with a fine toothed comb (I'm a wee bit compulsive). I definitely will bookmark it for future reference. A job well done!

Avatar m tn Once their problem ADHD was finally identified, they could get the information (and sometimes, but not always, the meds) to help them deal with it. Even if you don't have ADHD (although the symptoms sure lean that way), it means that a whole different approach could be taken. Dawie is correct. Do not go to your GP for this. Find a psychiatrist that specializes in ADHD. Finally, take some time to go through some of the posts on this web site.
Avatar n tn Does PANDAS correlate to ADD/ADHD symptoms or just OCD which you reference? Allergies are an interesting thing in terms of what they can do. Would a simple stick test for peanut allergy let one know if this is the case? My own son had ongoing issues that when evaluated were sensory related. I do think being allergic to something could cause sensory like symptoms in that someone would be uncomfortable. However, my son's problems were consistent with some days being worse than others.
