I'm treating a woman (with shiatsu) that asked me to treat her child (female, 4 year old) that's suffers from PFAPA syndrome that includes high fever, pain and wounds in throat, stomach ache and body aches. The etiology of this syndrome is unknown. Doctors gave her steroids for the attacks, and it helps her, but in a week it comes back. The problem is the mother is worried since she give her daughter steroids for a long period and she doesn't know when it will stop (she heard that this syndrome could vanish after the age of 10).
Is there any experience in treating this kind of disease?
Should I see this disease as auto immune/allergy? (I asked what makes the attack worse or what makes them come back again/trigger. The mother said in spring time it's increased)
The mother told me that her child been through a lot of tests and everything seems to be ok.
Thanks for everyone for sharing your knowledge!
