Lyme disease

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Lyme disease

Postby MicheleMaBell » Sun Mar 31, 2013 1:51 pm

I had a Lyme disease test come back positive from Igenex lab and I was diagnosed with PPMS. Every time I read about diagnosing PPMS I read that Lyme disease should be ruled out. So I can't understand why the neurologist are saying that Lyme disease doesn't exist here in Canada when I know that is not true and why two other doctors just ignore the Lyme disease diagnosis. I am planning on going back to my doctor and ask them to do more for me regarding this Lyme disease diagnosis.

Does anyone else have Lyme disease ruled out prior to the MS diagnosis?

Here's a map of Lyme Disease risk in the eastern US. Perhaps there has been a similar study for your part of Canada.

i too just got dagnosed in april 2013
after watching UNDER YOUR SKIN i honestly believe we will never be treated nor tested correctly as half of the drs simply don't believe chronic lyme disease exists.
i can only recommend naturopaths, they seem to do more research...
i am also of the belief all of these so called 'autoimune diseases' stem from all this.
anyone studying/researching this, of course not, its very political, medically, and governmentally (Canada).
ego's are there too
i only know the test must be done in the states and costs around $400 with the dr visit. then...well. thats where i am.
i'm soooo excited...
