Heather Talbert Hudson's Health Journey

First post: Jun 30, 2018 Latest post: Jan 13, 2019
Since the end of 2017, Hudson has been struggling with something akin to PANS: Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome. His primary symptoms include extreme anxiety, extreme food restriction, inability to function in school, and some OCD. Recently, we discovered through the Cunningham Panel that he does not have any antibody activity in the brain and does not have PANS. He does however have significant infections with Babesia, Bartonella and Ehrlichia. These are all tick borne infections that he probably got from a tick bite that we never discovered, up to as far away as 2 years ago. Searching for the root of what seemed to be PANS symptoms, help direct us to looking for infections that also cause neuro psychiatric symptoms. We would like for you to be able to follow his treatment and progress here. Thank you for your support.
