Default Re: Why ALS and not Lyme?

Sometimes, in advanced cases, of Lyme Disease there is damage that has been done by the disease that is unrecoverable. For example, if the atrophy to your shoulder is as a result of an active infection then your shoulder may remain as it currently is or it may take a long time to repair. A late stage Lyme disease infection can take a long time to resolve itself. Lyme disease has a zillion symptoms. It takes patience.

I cannot imagine a doctor at this point even considering that you have ALS unless your body begins to deteriorate quickly despite the antibiotics.
