IDSA guidelines called into question

The IDSA guidelines are the primary guidelines supporting the belief that post-lyme or chronic lyme does not exist. It is interesting to see the process by which those guidelines were constructed brought into question. They were last revised in 2006. Will this lead to more controversy or a more balanced view point?

Here’s a news article on the topic

  1. I am 19 years old and had lyme when I was 11. I was on IV antibiotics for two months when the oral antibiotics didnt work. I continue to have health problems such as tremors, fatigue and stomach problems. Could this be connected to the Lyme I had?

  2. I’ve come to the conclusion that post-lyme symptoms could fall into one of four categories — (1) you could still be infected (2) your body could have developed an auto-immune disease because of the lyme (3) you could have other secondary infections due to the lyme or it’s treatment (such as a systemic yeast infection) (4) you could have a co-incidental sickness that happened to occur with or after the lyme infection.

    I’m still trying to figure out which of those is true for myself and how to treat them. A good first step is to find a doctor who will talk with you about all of those possibilities and how to differentiate between them.
