NE PANDAS Association presents My Kid is Not Crazy - Movie Screening and Q & A in Foxboro, MA
Please join the NE PANDAS Association for the first New England screening of this important documentary. It will help spread awareness about PANDAS and continue to educate the public on this disease.
The movie starts at 7:30pm, and from 9:00-9:30pm Tim Sorel, the film maker will join us for a short Q & A.
My Kid is Not Crazy: A Search for Hope in the Face of Misdiagnosis, a film by Tim Sorel, tracks the journey of six children and their families as they become tangled in the nightmare of a medical system heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical industry. Here its common for a healthcare provider to prescribe a young child with a Selective Serotonin Uptake Inhibitor (SSRI) but hesitates to prescribe an antibiotic to counteract a potential infectious-based trigger. For some of these kids, what happens after several years is shocking and sad.
In 1998, Susan Swedo, MD discovered a link between strep throat and sudden onset obsessive compulsive disorder and/or tics. Since then, there has been raging controversy about the disorder and its appropriate treatment. This film looks at the diagnosis, physicians on both sides of the argument, and most importantly the lives of young children and the families that PANDAS affects.
