Default Re: Connection Between ALS and Lyme disease?

We were hoping for Lyme disease at one time, too. We've found deer ticks on our dogs several times, too. My husband was put on a course of prednisone in late December and had clear strengthening. He had a series of IVIg treatments in February and had an amazing response. Unfortunately, the IVIg treatment series in March produced no results, and the IVIg treatment series in April actually harmed him. We will be anxious to hear how you do on the antibiotic treatment, too. We are going to try and get our doctor to let my husband do another course of streroids and see if it produces any positive effects.
