Don't let the post treatment scare you off... this research is very interesting.
Wonder if everyone has seen this from months back?
My neuro said there is no definitive treatment readily available ... but the research is interesting. This disease is VERY complex indeed.
Peace, Love and Wellness, James

- Any doctor who just calls it Post Lyme (whatever) . . . is not likely going to explore the likelihood of chronic infection . . .
or the fact that many face complications not because it's "Post" lyme but because lyme was never treated correctly, thoroughly in the first place and it's gone on and on . . .or recurred.
There most certainly IS treatment for ongoing symptoms and that is to finally fully assess & treat the cause, be that lyme or other tick-borne infection . . .
yet, of course, other factors that any good LLMD would also consider: blood glucose issues / insulin resistance . . . nutrition deficiencies . . . environmental issues . . . sleep . . . Rx reactions (to any / all Rx that you may be taking) . . .
gluten issues, or other "offending" foods that cause inflammation, etc.
Most LLMD insist - or strongly encourage that all patients being treated for chronic / persistent lyme also address all these other mitigating factors so that the treatment has the best chance possible.
I would not trust any doctor that just lumps inflammation into "Post" lyme at all. It's ignoring the science of how lyme works in the body.
Find a doctor who truly understand the science of lyme while also being able to highlight an full plan of action to address the coinfections that might be on board . . . and the confounding factors that can be controlled with diet, etc.-. -
