PANDAS disease

Has anyone heard of this disease PANDAS. It associated OCD with strep. My 8 year old son was fine, had a sore throat, and then a couple of weeks later woke up a different child. He will not eat solid food because he is afraid he will choke. He is begging me not to make him go back to school after Christmas break. He goes nuts if he sees a hair on him, if the couch has hair on it, he will not sit on it. He hates to sleep alone and is petrified I am going to leave. I do not understand what is happening.

We have seen a counselor, but I was not overly impressed. She gave us no solutions or ideas, just said I had to make him go to school. He only goes to specials at school 1 hour a day, the rest of the time I homeschool him.

I am just a scared mom. Any thoughts?

I suggest that you find someone that will listen and actually give you some kind of therapy bc a counselor should be helping trying anything possible not just leave you hanging
