No one on this forum is an expert on whether lyme can cause an MS-like disease. So I don't think you should draw conclusions on the cause of your MS based on these posts.
I especially do not think you should take the attitude that even if your MS was caused by lyme that you cannot or should not treat it. You need to do research about that. There are plenty of people who were formally dx'd with MS, later treated for lyme and are much better now. Compare that with the general prognosis of MS (except for the current wonder cures where your immune system is wiped out, you are cured, but you still have to stay on immuno-modulating drugs because you aren't totally cured until your immune system is retrained---and then you are cured, until your MS comes back and you have to be cured again).
Contrary to the tone set in these posts there are a good many highly respected researchers who think it is entirely possible that lyme causes some people to get the disease we describe as MS. Furthermore, a differential diagnosis of MS v. Neuroborreliosis is exceedingly challenging if one admits to the absolutely abysmal state of testing for lyme.
One final thing about the radiology assistant site. Am I the only one who picked up the quite unscientific tone the author took when describing the issue of differential between MS and Lyme??.....I'm quoting from the website in the MS section under Reporting,
"If a patient is clinically suspected of having MS and the MR-images support that diagnosis, than you should not consider the possibility of Lyme's disease and neuro-SLE in the differential diagnosis, because they have such a low prevalence.
There must be other ways to impress your collegues.
These diagnoses are only worth mentioning if there are clinical findings that support these diagnoses"
What the heck it that about?............so we throw out a possible lyme (not Lyme's-a pet peeve of mine) diagnosis because, in the opinion of these docs, it's rare..????.....
Clinical findings???? They can be and often are exactly the same in MS and lyme. Now what? and what does impressing colleagues have to do with anything?
