Default Re: Connection Between ALS and Lyme disease?

I know this thread is a few years old but hopefully someone can answer a question for me.

My mom was recently diagnosed with ALS after relatives noticed her slurred speech. She had also been complaining of a tickle in her throat and chronic post-nasal drip for some time before that. I've encouraged her to get tested for Lyme disease as well.

Would EMG and NCV tests be able to rule out Lyme disease, or would the results for Lyme and ALS be similar? I know my mom had one or both tests done as part of her diagnosed.

Also, does anyone here happen to know of a good Lyme dr in eastern PA, or point me towards a good resource? The LDA website had nothing in that area.

Thanks,
Marc
