Doc never mentioned plaque deposits - on reports that we received it did say that all findings were conflicting for a diagnosis of AD. But doc says that is what it is. My husband has on several ocassions had a spinal tap and has tested positive in his spinal fluid for lyme disease. We know that it is neurological lyme. I am not 100% convinced that it is AD - this doctor will not eve talk about lyme. He is very closed minded about this - what do you all think....... HopeFloats
My husband Jimmy was tested for Lyme Disease - he was initially bit in 95 - doc said then that it was a spider bite - he was bit a second time in 02 and was diagnosed at that time to have lyme. Since then we have found out that he also has erlichiosis, bartonella and Q fever - all co-infections of lyme disease - I truly believe his cognitive and memory issues are from lyme due to the fact that it went untreated for 7 years - that's a lot of time to imbed itself in a body and to do harm - what do you think ???
Hi Again SnowyLynne
He has been treated with antiobiotics and IV antibiotics on and off for years - he feels better when he is on them but they can certainly take their toll on the body for sure - his stomach is a constant mess - that is why I wonder about the diagnosis of AD - his neuro has never quite accepted the idea that Jimmy suffers from chronic neurological lyme disease - maybe I am in denial about the AD probably because he is so young and we have 2 young children - life can sure suck somtimes ..........
