Default Re: Don't discount Lyme

If that were true that Lyme coinfections can "start" ALS, then getting treated aggressively for Lyme should eradicate it... which it doesn't. I really thought I had Lyme, and got treated, to no avail. The problem is that many symptoms of Lyme are similar when they get to the neurological stage (not sure I said that right, but hopefully you get the drift). And I do have the book that is the "bible" that was written on Lyme disease which talks about a few people being "cured" of ALS when treated for Lyme... possible that it was Lyme all along? Very likely.

I do think that my symptoms started with a very strange virus or illness that was never diagnosed... I just never was right after getting through that period of time, and then I got my diagnosis.
