Woooo Hoooo !!!! (I think?)

I hope this VaD. Vasular Dementia is more treatable. So glad they finally figured this out so they can properly treat you Snowy.

Not sure how different this form of dementia is . . . any ideas?

Blessings!

Hi you don't know me I am knew to this forum. I just joined today to get into the Lyme forum.

I checke the AD forum because I was initially misdiagnosed as having early onset AD. Then docs told me it was vascular dementia. Then it was vasculitis. They thought they knew but they didn't.

Now I have been tested (positive) for Lyme disease because I met a nurse with Lyme and she told me Lyme is known for causing vasculitis. She was very confused with Lyme just like me and she isn't very old either. Her dementia is better and she just has some leftover effects now like other neuro stuff.

I am just glad I know now so that I can get treated and there is hope I can get better with antibotics.
