We just got back from the dr. SO glad I went for a second opinion. She was so much more thorough than our regular allergiest-she spent a half an hour in the exam room with us. She took a detailed history and examined ds from head to toe. She doens't think it's PANDAS-he doesn't meet all the criteria. So that's a reliefe. And (knocking on every piece of wood I have) his behaviors have started in improve since the weekend. She feels that it was a horrible case of strep and this may be the way his body reacts. He is more sensitive to illness and sensory type things due to his aspergers, and is already prone to anxiety. She ordered blood work, including a strep titer, which we will repeat in 4-6 weeks to make sure it's going down. She also feels that if he gets one more infection, we should see an ENT to get tonsils/adenoids out. We saw an ENT for a consult last year because his tonsils are HUGE and his adenoids are enlarged as well. At that time, we elected to wait on the surgery since he wasn't prone to infections. Now that has changed. So we will keep close eye on it, and treat his seasonal allergies right now.
Thanks for all the input or advice.

It is always good to find a doctor who will take the time and has the knowledge to "do it right"
