Op, You say you are in England. The NHS does not recognize Pandas as being a condition so I don't know how easy it will be to see a paediatrician who will treat it.

Yes, oh no Sad I'm going to try. We have one doctor who is Israeli, maybe he can help us. This is so hard!

Opinions aside
From experience
A went to a great naturopath who muscle tested for the right nutritional protocol to address the underlying biological imbalances and did energy work to help the body release the emotional imbalances
Helped a lot.
Basically, go to a healer

He's been for cbt therapy which did help a lot. He had tics and those are gone since he's been bh. He still suffers a lot, we're in England. I don't know where to start. My Doctor just said to get him therapy because if we go through the nhs, getting him diagnosed etc he'll most likely be put onto medication. I'm happy for him to take meds if he needs, and if it'll help. My dh isn't, he thinks ds is ok overall. But I see that he's far from a typical child his age. And he struggles with a lot of daily things. Hates having showers or baths (he won't tell us why bc he's embarrassed) needs reminding to change his underwear. He's 12! He is responsible to a certain extent but he also panics at every little thing.


Hi OP, I live in England too, and I have a 12yr old son with very similar sounding behaviours. He's been in therapy for a while, but I haven't seen much change really. He's struggling and I'm struggling in knowing how to help him. It's such an awful feeling not knowing what to do. It seems all I can do is be there for him, and listen to him as much as I can, as that's the only thing that seems to keep him relaxed to some extent.

Hugs, I know how hard it is!

Thanks so much. It helps to know that I'm not alone. I've been to therapy for myself in how to deal with him better. It did help a bit bh. It's a work in progress...

He hates change, I'm due after sukkos iyh I'm a bit nervous but trying to let go, and leave it up to my husband and the one above to deal with him lol!

Hatzlocho to you too with your son. Maybe they can be friends? 😀

I am sorry for your son and you for what's going on.
Is there a possibility that your son may have been molested?

You may find it helpful to contact Relief.

Panic at every little thing can indicate some unresolved shock trauma.
Find him a good somatic-based trauma therapist.
Have you tried biodynamic craniosacral therapy? that is very soothing.
