This is terrible. He's a good kid too. Sharon would be such a great voice for us, or even for MS.

BUT

How do you convince someone that the best doctors money can buy MIGHT be wrong?

How can we get their email address

So maddening when young people get diagnosed with MS right out of the blue.

Will people finally clue in once there is a MS epidemic. I wonder what will be the event that opens the lid on this

interesting isn't it that MS is an acceptable diagnosis but lyme isn't. Just one more clue in this strangly familiar cover-up.

One difference is that MS cannot be cured. Could there be a link between the possible financial gain of drug companies? Not sure...but, MS is treatment for the rest of your life. Lyme is not with the right treatment.

Very interesting...

Great thinking outside of the box supergirl
I never thought of that angle before

But the main reason for the denial is insurance companies not wanting to foot the bill for expensive lyme treatment. But then they are paying for MS treatment indefinitely.....

Remember that lyme is just one stealth infection that can cause MS. There are others, too (such as Cpn, mycoplasma p.. Also certain nutrient deficiencies, chemical exposures, etc.

So, years ago my spinal tap and MRI were indicative of MS. Neuro at the time said Lyme or MS. Wanted to see if I responded to abx before deciding.

I did respond to some degree so she said Lyme. Since, I've discovered I have chronic Mycoplasma, Cpn, EBV, H. Plori and God knows what else.

I have not been under the care of a Neurologist in a very long time and have plateued with treatment.

I wonder if it is dangerous in my situation to not be under the care of a Neurologist for the possible MS since treatment has only brought me so far. Feel like I am in limbo at the moment. Neither here nor there.

Thing is, does anyone know what a Neuro would say about my possible MS while being aware of all my chronic infections? What do neurologists do with patients that they know have many infections and MS symptoms? What is the approach.

Also, when a Neurologist dx's MS, do they look for infections as the cause?

There are several old studies suggesting that long term antibiotic improves MS. But doxy isnt patented and therfore there is done no research. government should reinforce such old treatments as the kind of new medicine like the monoclonal antibodies (rituximab and so on) are bankrupping the state and the people. Maybe interesting to know for you all is how cheap can generics be here in Germany. Doxycyclin 200mg 20tabl. e.g. is sold for about 2$ to the parmacy (from manufacturer). Azithromycin 500mg 3tabl. is sold for about 4$ to the pharmacy (from manufacturer).

Yeah makes me wonder if the media and Osborne family are just saying it's MS because they want to stay out of the whole Lyme disease fiasco...

We all know all the crazy stuff going on right now. Like not releasing LLMD on forums for particular reasons. Wouldn't be surprised if some celebrities want to keep their Lyme disease secretive.

If Jack Osbourne stays healthy, well we'll know why.
