Lyme disease affects a minimum of 350,000 per year in the United States. I believe we are epidemic numbers with little being said by the government or the Center for Disease Control. There are millions of cases worldwide.
The symptoms vary from person to person. It can be mild fatigue, to lack of concentration ( also called Brain Fog) to severe arthritis. Recently Sacred Science had a series called Remedies for which I discussed Lyme. The author, Stephen Buhner of Healing Lyme also discussed Lyme and its co infections. I encourage anyone who has Lyme or knows someone who does to read his book.
The spirochetes that cause Lyme are called stealth pathogens which means they hide within the tissue. Although some infectious disease conventional physicians do not believe in Chronic Lyme—I believe there is Chronic Lyme. Up to 25 % of patients do not respond to conventional antibiotics and relapse. Although testing has improved , they are still not completely reliable. Tests allowed for Lyme vary from state to state.
You must seek an Integrative MD/ ND to treat your Lyme. The co-infections that can accompany Lyme are often more incapacitating than Lyme- these can be EBV, Mycoplasma, Babesia, Bartonella and much more
