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.

    Hi everyone! I’m new here so here’s a little about me. I’ve had Lyme for 4 years now and have gone through two oral antibiotics and a PIC line. I have not been on treatment for over 2 years, but feel I need to get back in to see a doctor. I have become disabled due to the memory loss that accompanies this disease. I should be living life up at 34, not forgetting everything like I’m an old...

    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. I went through 5 doctors already and they were no help so I made an appointment with an LLMD in PA, but my appointment isn't until June because that was the only open spot, it's just really hard to wait right now. I am new to all this but I was wondering if all LLMD's are this long of a wait or...

    New herx or is worsening of Lyme?

    4
    With more joints joining in the cacophony, including even my toes when I walk, and now my left shoulder too, should I assume Lyme is continuing to spread? Or is it a new herx 5 weeks in to massive antibiotc treatment? I should add that swimming, which is against the rules outlined in the "Hints" manual, may be working my joints more.Thanks everyone in advance. I'm really curious about why all...

    Hi my name is Linda. I am 35 yrs old and just received my Lyme diagnosis even though I have had it 30 yrs. My health and quality of life has been decreasing very quickly in only the past 6 yrs. I was only correctly diagnosed by being my own advocate because it seems most m.d.s are clueless. So now I'm sitting here with my prescription of doxycycline but from what I read antibiotics don't really...

    I have been diagnose with mold and lyme disease for almost four years now. For the last three years, I have been driving three hours to see a  dr of integrative medicine who is using the Klinghardt protocol to treat my lyme and co infections. Fortunately, we have the mold under control. When all of this started, my only symptoms were nerve pain in my teeth and fullness in my left ear. That was...

    I just started treatment for Lyme. Going to a LLMD and doing antibiotics and herbal treatment. A week in I'm having a herx reaction and I am very short tempered and easily frustrated. With joint pain numb hands and feet and muscle twitches. I'm assuming other people have felt like this. I was told it would be like this but I don't think I really believed it.
