Lyme and Alzheimer's Disease: What's In The Future?
There are several doctors who have posted videos about a possible link between Lyme disease and Alzheimer's disease. I do not doubt that this is a very real possibility. More research needs to be done on Lyme disease. It is such a "new" disease, that not all understand it or accept that it is a real condition. I am just beginning to understand this disease, and I have it myself.
When I was discussing my condition with an infectious disease doctor, before I knew what it was, he tried to write off my symptoms as menopause or hormone problems. I replied, "My 82 year old mother gets around better than I do." Sadly, this was no exaggeration. If the Lyme disease is causing the same kind of damage to my brain as it is my body, I have plenty to worry about. The body can heal, regain a certain amount of strength and flexibility, even in middle age. Not so the brain. Thank God for spell check.
