Life Threatening? No
Write-up: He became very confused about time, went into the bathroom to brush his teeth 2 days after his 1st Pfizer shot and would not stop brushing his teeth for 30 hours. His parents tried to get him to stop several times. He only stopped because his parents finally called 911 to have someone help remove him from the bathroom. His gums were bleeding and he was limping a bit from standing at the sink brushing his teeth for so long. He was taken to the ER, his vitals looked good overall but he was dehydrated. Hospital could not explain why he did that, what was happening inside his brain. He could also not explain why he did that when asked. Very upsetting for his parents and siblings who felt they had no control over stopping him. It was mentioned he might need a neurological specialist. He improved once home. Seems he got very confused about time, did not understand how long he had been brushing his teeth and could not be reasoned with. He mentioned in the car on the way home from the ER with his dad that he still needed to brush his teeth once home. This scared his dad and his dad took him to go eat a meal outside of the home and that seemed to break up the time loop in patient''s head. When they returned home patient no longer tried to brush his teeth for a long period of time.
