Meg,
People have to make their own choices for everything. Of course, if a person, who has never been exposed to the possibility of being bit by an infectious tick by virtue of his/her environment/habitat, and is diagnosed with ALS after all else was excluded - I would say, chances of being Lyme infected are pretty nil.

However, for those of us, who live in the areas designated as red-hot for Lyme ticks, have been bit, exhibit symptoms, and have been diagn with ALS, but never checked for Lyme? You mean to tell me this is a scam? If I am that one person in a 1,000 who does indeed end up having Lyme AND gets better - EXCUSE ME, but I will be a verry happy person.

Anyone can make up their own mind. I am a hard core skeptic about most matters in life. Getting a Lyme test has not been something done without a thought and detailed time-table of events over 15 years, to realize, this was one major possibility we never considered. So it is being considered now.

If it works - I will post.
If it does not turn out to be of help - I will post.
