Lyme Disease Support Group

Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the Northern Hemisphere. It is now one of the fastest growing infectious diseases in the U.S. Lyme disease is caused by infection with the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria, and is primarily transmitted to humans as well as dogs, horses and other domesticated animals by the bite of infected ticks.

    Your best advice for a newbie?

    Hi all,I am seeing an MD who practices integrative medicine. He has diagnosed me with lyme + babesia via muscle testing. He can run lab tests, but my impression is they are unreliable.

And does anyone know...

    New here

    I joined the CFS support group months ago and just this week got a positive Lyme Disease test result. My primary symptom (besides brain fog) is exhaustion.

    Advice on Finding LLMD

    I am new to this site, but I have every symptom of lyme disease and each day I get worse and worse.
