I have been following your work carefully, andÂ I thank you soÂ much.Â I am 45 years young.Â I was diagnosed by 3 PD specialists and 2 other neurologists only 9 months ago, but have had symptoms for almost 2 years.Â My symptoms are not improving but my attitude has been upbeat due to your work and John Coleman’s.Â I continue to try all sorts of holistic natural therapies.Â Many of my symptoms are changing and new ones popping up quickly.
I live in an area (Maryland) that has lots of deer ticks and Lyme.Â I was just diagnosed with chronic Lyme’s via the IGeneXÂ lab by a wonderful Lyme Literate MD.Â This may be the smoking gun (so to speak!).Â I can keep you updated if youÂ would like.Â I’ve been told from the beginning by Neurologists that my Parkinson’s symptoms were “A-typical”.
Have you gone down the research path for a PD and Lyme Link?
Thanks for all that you do!
There is an overlap between the symptoms of Parkinson’s and Lyme Disease. The research suggests that some people are misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease when in fact they have Lyme Disease. From how I see it, this is a possibility that is often overlooked. The symptoms are very similar.
Of course, the recommended treatments are vastly different. This is one of the reasons I talk so much about strengthening your immune system regardless of the diagnosis.
We all look forward to your updates on this unique path of recovery.
