One of my twin boys who has been clinically diagnosed by Dr. J with lyme, bart and babs has recently started making clicking sounds with his tongue and pointing repeatedly with his finger. He also shakes his head slightly and has become more verbally and physically aggressive. He also says "sh" a lot while he is pointing his finger.
The pointing started subtly a couple of months ago and I didn't think anything of it. But now he does it a lot more and has started doing these other things, like the sounds.
If I ask him to to something and he doesn't want to do it, he has a very loud and strong negative reaction. He has been oppositional since this disease started, but it seems to be getting worse.
His only other symptoms besides the behavior stuff now is headaches and night sweats a few times per week. Sometimes his eyes hurt too but it seems that he points to above his eyes so I wonder if it's part of the headache. He used to have terrible insomnia but fortunately that has stopped.
He has been on Mepron, cefdinir and bactrim since June of 08 and I am very concerned that he is backsliding. He was on azith instead of the cefdinir for a month in the beginning, but his stomach couldn't tolerate it.
Does this sound like OCD to you? Did you or your child have any of these symptoms?
In your experience, do you attribute it to bart or lyme or babs or something else?
What drug or drugs do you think helped get rid of this symptom?
Thanks so much. I see Dr. J on Friday with him and would love to get some info before that.
