I have the DVD, and it is revealing. If you all lived closer, I'd invite you over for popcorn.

You can buy it here (disclaimer: I have NOTHING to do with this movie, just passing on info)

Thanks Robbie, sounds very interesting. FEI (For Everyone's Info), the title is "Under Our Skin," it's a movie about Lyme Disease, and here's a New York Times review (they call it "an inflammatory documentary"), followed by interesting comments from the public: http://movies.nytimes.com/2009/06/19/mo ... under.html

Here's one particularly pertinent quote from the review:

"Several doctors who have devoted their lives to research and treatment are interviewed. They compare chronic Lyme disease to A.L.S. (Lou Gehrig’s disease), Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis, and one implies that it may be a contributing factor to such illnesses, for which there no known cure."
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)
