Lyme Disease

Hi, I noticed on Facebook an article highlighted by Terry Wahls, about a woman who was diagnosed with MS but who in fact had Lyme disease, which is caused by tick bites and treated with antibiotics. She’s now fully recovered. In some countries,they apparently test for Lyme disease before diagnosing MS. Anyone here had a test done? Heather

Hi Heather,

Most people here will have had the test done. The UK is one of the “some countries”.

Hi Heather I was not tested for Lyme disease but it is a long time since I was diagnosed, 1995 so things may well have changed. Cheryl:-)

You can’t mistake lymes disease… You get what they call the typical " bullies eye " rash. Seen it on a friend and its quite nasty.

I believe I have been tested for it.
