My 4yr old autistic son was sick in december with strep throat. He was given amoxicillin which did not clear up the strep, then put on zithromax. After this period of antibiotics he began tilting/ hanging his head to the left, began noticing reflux and Gerd issues and constant complaining of abdominal pain. Dr, prescribed pepcis which did little to help, sent to GI Dr who put him on previcid, which has done little to help. He then had a colonoscopy and throat scope. The biopsy of throat showed some immflamation. His symptoms continue to slowly get worse. He then had a MRI of brain done which showed a possoble AVM in the deep brain matter. So far nothing is helping and these symptoms are limiting his activity and progress in his ABA therapy. Before this he was an active kid that loved to play, now its a struggle for him as he is always tilting his head to left, lack of energy, and throat pain. There was a mentiom of PANDAS? Supposed to see neurologist in a few weeks. I feel more testing needs to be done, blood work has come back normal. He has swollen lymph nodes in groin area that are hard and about 1cm diameter. This has been going on since december with the Head tilting amd gerd being the main factors in limiting the daily activites of my son.
