Welcome Bmann42!

Any body stress can kick in Celiac Disease, as in pregnancy, mono, surgery, bodily trama or just stress.

But instead of your OCD being the cause of Gluten Intolerance, the opposite might have happened. An underlying gluten intolerance (or predisposition) may have been triggered by your Strep Infection, and your OCD symptoms may have developed.

Try going 100% gluten free as best as you are able and your OCD MAY clear. Nothing ventured..nothing gained. :) Isn't worth the chance? B)

This is a very old thread, but I haven't been on the boards for several years. I logged on to look for more info on this.  My husband and I both have Celiac Disease. We have three gluten-sensitive kids, and one of them also has PANDAS.  I have met two other parents whose children have both Celiac Disease and PANDAS.  They're both autoimmune conditions; I'm not sure if there is a link beyond that.  For my son, the PANDAS showed up years after he was on the gluten-free diet.  So for those hoping the GFD "fixes" PANDAS, probably not.  But certainly, getting glutened can be bad for your brain in other significant ways. :S
