Lyme disease- IF you have ever been told it is in your head!

I will probably be doing follow ups on this topic, I only have a moment now to address it.

Mostly a couple of links to send you on your way. If you have been diagnosed with any of the following, and have not had the help you need, or no improvement, you might have lyme disease. Do not let your Dr. tell you that you can't have it, that it is not in the state. Lyme disease occurs in every state in the Union, and if not treated immediately can cause major long time physical, and physicatric problems.

1. Diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue syndrom
2. Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia
3. Diagnosed with MS or MS like symptoms
4. Diagnosed with Alzheimers
5. Diagnosed with ALS or ALS like symptoms (Lou Gehrig's disease)
6. Psychiatric problems that can include the following
  • you have rapid mood swings that may mimic bipolarility, (Manic/dpression)
  • Cognitive losses
  • Psychosis
  • seizures
  • violent behavior, irritability
  • Rage attacks/impulse dyscontrol
  • Anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • sleep disorders
  • Autism-like syndromes

This is just a quick list, I hope to do more in a few days. I have a friend that has been diagnosed with Lyme's disease and is long term treatment for it. This is an issue that needs to be looked at, as it seems there are many health problems related to this problem and the medical community for the most part ignores/or are unaware of the scope and magnitude of the illness.
