PANDAS and PANS happen when infectious and environmental triggers cause total body immune confusion, which in turn targets a child’s brain. This results in changes to how the brain works, thinks, processes information, and feels. PANDAS and PANS exemplify how a physical body problem can express as behavioral and mental health changes.
