THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

Children and Lyme

  This is a very good article I want to share as is for those who spend a lot of time with children. Parents, Teachers, Doctors, Nurses, First Responders.
This article will also have it's own page for children.
 
Children Ages 5-14 are at the Greatest Risk of Acquiring Lyme Disease Around 25% of all reported cases are children. According to research, children are bitten by ticks more frequently around the head and neck, making them more vulnerable to brain and central nervous system infections.

THE GREAT LYME EPIDEMIC

  I hope you all enjoy and learn something from our web/blog and if you are incline to read more about our Journey through challenge and Lyme. You can go to my timeline atwww.facebook.com/DavidRThomas
 
  In my wife's and my journey through Lyme. We have found and lost and found and lost. We have become strong for each other and for ourselves. This disease is a hidden disease that the medical community is still finding it hard to except with misguidance from the CDC and the IDSA who right's the guidelines for our medical community.

Lyme Testing

 
From an article : 15 diseases doctors often get wrong / from my - health.com MSN page/artic
 You probably know to look out for tick bites and the telltale bullseye rash that can form around them if a person is infected with Lyme disease. But not everyone develops this rash—and Lyme disease's other symptoms (like fatigue, headaches, joint pain, and flu-like symptoms) can easily be confused for other conditions, says Dr. Shapiro.A blood test can check for Lyme disease antibodies in the blood, but those usually don't show up until a few weeks after infection and the test is notoriously unreliable.

Lyme and Lizards

  I Awoke to an article by a FB reader scientist researcher integrative medicine person this morning. It is very worth the read.
I lifted this from Doctor sussers Lizard story. at:
http://www.murraysussermd.com/lyme-disease-and-lizards-los…/ ----------------------- I wanted to write this blog about Lizards because of some comments I received from the California Lyme Support Group about the Western Fence Lizard (Sceloporus occidentals) and its connection to Ly...me disease.

Ecceptance and Lyme

Hello my Lymee friends and readers,
 My Journey through challenge has taken me pretty much the same track as so many others in the lyme world. Every once in a while there is a doctor who refers one of his patients to an LLMD. That is something that was unheard of in 2005. As for understanding and diagnosis, I have found many people who come to me and wish to see somebody about a possible lyme infection only to be blown off later because their doctor has chosen yet another brilliant diagnosis to blame all their troubles to. It is ignorance and refusal to except the possibility that their may be something causing these overblown issues outside these little blocks of knowledge that doctors receive at the big U. It never fails for those who I am thinking need to see an LLMD will eventually see an LLMD or die. In the end it is the patients choice. The concept that there can be lyme related issues outside that block of knowledge magnifying many correct diagnosis is also a big issue. In the end Lyme disease, coinfections, correct or incorrect diagnosis's. I would not go to a foot doctor for an autoimmune issue no more than I would go to a lyme doctor for a tooth ache. The big familiar here is non acceptance in the medical community. But trails are being forged for lyme sufferers everyday.

Organ Donors

    I use to be a Donor. But now I am a Lyme recoverer. Many people are getting sick organs. Until we can get a knowledgeable medical community. Babesia, Bartonella, Erlichia, and many other coinfections will be transferred. But still believe perhaps it is a great program if tested properly. I believe with an igenex Western blot test to determine about Lyme is or is not present. A good chance there are no coinfections. But not always the case. They say the organs are clean but the medical community will not use tests that work and only allow tests proven and protocoled by IDSA and CDC and high paid legislators. And now the government is being pressured into outlawing the very tests that can save us. IN MY OPINION.

Senate Lyme bill#177

In regards to Senate bill #177 relating to lyme. Signed by Gov. Corbett. Pa.
  I am hoping this will be a step forward for the tick borne disease sufferers, Lyme Illiterate Medical community, and education for our children in schools, home, and parents. This Lyme affects all of us. I hope there will be enough sense to include in education the Lyme Disease assoc. and Ilads athttp://www.ilads.orgto educate from the field as well as from your bought and paid for government laboratories who have missed the bout on this tragic error in judgment.

Finally fed up.

 I am a lyme advocate and was just chatting with a probable lyme sufferer on the street that I have been talking with. Finely her oncologists told after asking if she could have lyme disease. His words were , you have something but we are not sure what it is. We are trained for recognizing lyme disease and you don't have lyme disease. Perhaps she don't have his trained form of lyme disease but I am quite sure this poor lady who has been run through 15 plus doctors at some of the finest hospitals has a Tick borne infection and probably more than one.

A LYME LITTERATE PROBLEM

 With all of the challenges right now between LLMD's and the NON LLMD communities I felt the need to republish this article which I have submitted to Shelley at Public Heath Alert.
   I have been talking with a Reader about Lyme Literacy, Lyme specialists, LLMD'S, Lyme Sufferers, oncologist. There seems to be a misunderstanding in the NON-lyme circles that LLMD's consider themselves specialists. That is the furthest from the truth as that could be. LLMD's are always learning lyme.
