Hi all, I'm a 36yo female that has suffered from severe anxiety/OCD since about age 23. Not understanding why I was beginning to suffer from this, I went to my GP who prescribed antidepressants for my anxiety/unrelenting worry (pure OCD). Over the past almost 14 years the anxiety/OCD has increased in severity, and I've continued my search for answers. I am now on 5 different prescriptions for anxiety/OCD.
In working with a PANDAS/PANS expert recently, I had some lab work done that might shed some light on the severe anxiety / OCD I've been dealing with for…years. Anyone out there with similar results and/or experiences?? Dr. J, have you seen this type of correlation before??Coxsackie A IgG/IgM AntibodyCoxsackie A7 IgG 1:800 High titer Neg:<1:100Coxsackie A9 IgG 1:1600 High titer Neg:<1:100Coxsackie A16 IgG 1:1600 High titer Neg:<1:100Coxsackie A24 IgG 1:1600 High titer Neg:<1:100Coxsackie B Virus AntibodiesCoxsackie B Virus, Type 1 1:320 High <1:10Coxsackie B Virus, Type 2 1:80 High <1:10Coxsackie B Virus, Type 3 1:160 High <1:10Coxsackie B Virus, Type 5 1:160 High <1:10Coxsackie B Virus, Type 6 1:80 High <1:10Immunoglobulin G, Qn, Serum 764 mg/dL 700 – 1600IgG, Subclass 1 408 Low mg/dL 422 – 1292M pneumoniae IgG Abs549 High U/mL 0 – 99 Negative: <100 Indeterminate: 100 - 320 Positive: >320Immunoglobulin ETotal 3 (LOW END) IU/mL 0 – 100February 8, 2015 at 3:10 pm #3340

Thank you Dr. Jenike – appreciate your help! As a follow-up, I received a few more results back that may be helpful to you and Dr. Williams.
EBV, Chronic/Active Infection
EBV Ab VCA, IgG = 54.8 High U/mL (0.0 - 17.9)
Equivocal 18.0 - 21.9
HHV 6 IgG Antibodies = 7.78 High
Equivocal 0.76 - 0.99
Is there any way to get in touch with Dr. Williams directly? Obviously not for diagnostic purposes, but for some perspective?
