May Day 6 Lyme Awareness


  1. Sore throat
  2. Trouble swallowing
  3. Stomach aches
  4. Vomiting
  5. Constipation
  6. Diarrhea
  7. Motion sickness
  8. Vertigo
  9. Bad balance
  10. Face pain (similar to sinus pain, but different)

  1. If treated right away that “month” of abx can actually stop all of the problems
  2. Left untreated, the body suffers migrating symptoms. Leading once again to the “crazy” accusations.
  3. Symptoms can be sudden and random, literally changing moment to moment.
  4. Confusion arises because patients are force to follow their sx to specialists- neurologists, pain specialists, allergists, physiatrists. No one has a consistent answer.
  5. Patients often end up on band-aid medicine. Many meds to mask the pain, dizziness, whatever. The root of the problem still is not addressed under this medical treatment
  6. Long term antibiotic treatment is seen as controversial in the medical world, but many LD patients improve with it.
  7. Dr. Alan MacDonald, MD, Medical Pathologist. Explains his understandings in Under Our Skin, by looking at the similarities between LD and Syphilis. Remember, they are both spirochetes having corkscrew shapes.
  8. He say that by 1945, Dr Stokes, a Syphilis expert wrote that it manifests in all bodily tissues including bone and brain, the latter leading to general paresis, basically a changing of the brain leading to what was at the time considered psychosis. Dr MacDonald notes that the symptoms are virtually the same as Alzheimer's disease.
  9. Dr MacDonald asks in UOS, why if one spirochete cause Alzheimers, then why can’t a similar one cause LD. He examined 10 Alzheimers brain’s from the Harvard brain lab and found that 7 had DNA of Bb bacteria. Meaning 7/10 were LD positive.
  10. He questions whether Lyme could be one of the causes for existing neurologically degenerative diseases. In UOS, he lists Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s Disease/ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis/MS.
