Default Re: Is there a connection between Multiple Sclerosis and Lyme?

Hi there! From what I've read MS and Lyme's symptoms are very similar, but the origins are different. As far as I know you can get a MS diagnoses easily with a MRI, but with Lyme it's so complicated... there are blood tests for it, but they rarely show up positive. So it's very tricky. But if I had the choice between MS and Lyme I'd pick Lyme disease over MS... Because as far as I know MS is progressive, you can go into remission... but after a while it might progress steadily. I'm not saying Lyme disease is a walk in the park, but MS scares me more (I know someone who has it).

And yes, you need a second opinion if you suspect that your first diagnosis isn't right. You should always do that, for for a third or fourth one if necessary. Best of luck with everything and please keep us posted!
