Wonder if it could be another co-infection from a tick. http://releases.usnewswire.com/GetRelease.asp?id=66663

Quite possible.I read in a couple of lyme disease books there are about 100 coinfections tics carry.Only about 22 are recognized.It makes them nearly impossible to treat.

World wide they think there might be around 300 tic bourne disease.

It is almost a pandemic and people don't even know it.

What they found was a virus. Lyme is a bacteria, big difference.

Duh, I know there is a big difference between bacteria & viruses.. just wondering if this virus could be carried & spread by tick. Thus it could possibly be a co-infection.

Wonder if any LLMDs would consider it.

Very intriguing.

Well, they're not getting their scalpels into MY brain lesions for testing!!

[Eek!]

I think anything is possible. And we only ever know a tiny fraction of what there is to know. (About lyme, or anything else, for that matter!)
