Thanks for posting this...we cannot ignore the role that inflammation plays in our ongoing neuro symptoms. This study may explain why some have persistent symptoms post treatment and others do not...?

If infection would be adequately addressed from the start, inflammation would be brought under control. Treating the infection is number one on the list.

Feelfit, thanks for link above to the article:

Possible role of glial cells in the onset and progression of Lyme neuroborreliosis

Here's another similar article from the same journal:

www.jneuroinflammation.com/content/5/1/40

Persisting atypical and cystic forms of Borrelia burgdorferi and local inflammation in Lyme neuroborreliosis

Amazing they admit it can last a lifetime. Still hard to see in print....such a bummer.

I felt the same way when reading that Lymebytes...as a matter of fact, after posting I told a friend not to bother reading it. Reality is tough to look in the eye sometimes....

I was particulairly interested in the mention of 'cranial neuropathies'..something that i have never come across in the literature...at least in regards to lyme.
