Default Re: ALS/Lyme Help

Your story is a lot like ours. My hb diagnosed 08 tested negative for Lyme here in Canada, but his onset of symptoms justified a clinical diagnosed of Lyme and antibiotics were started. At 1st it was oral, then 3 kinds of oral for 3 months. Then iv ceftriaxone (2mg) for 6 months. He still declined, from walking, to walker, to wheelchair. He showed no sign of improvement. The Lyme specialist stopped treatment. He said he has given all the antibiotics that he could legally administer and that he could not justify giving anymore. My hb still thinks Lyme. Hope I guess. He wants another Lyme test from igenex labs.
I believe Lyme can trigger ALS. But once it starts, it can't be stopped. If the virus/bacteria breaks through the blood brain barrier, they can't stop it. Yet.... Why has this theory not been proven or dispelled? Good thesis/Research paper for a young, think outside the box, medical student. Me thinks.
