I have been DX with both Lyme and MS it depends on what DR I see in what State. My MS has been very typical and easy for them to DX, I have also tested CDC Positive for Lyme 8 times. I think that was pretty easy to DX but my Dr would disagree. I believe I have Lyme and antibiotics have stopped much of the progression. But there are some symptoms that come and go.
I really wish I could find a local Dr who would look at both sides and treat me. I am afraid that will never happen. I have seen a couple LLMD and love them but can never afford to see them regularly and usually end up coming up with my own treatment choices. I am about to start a herbal plan. My body has done enough antibiotics for awile.
I hope you find the answers you are looking for. I was so surprised how much Drs don't like Lyme disease and look the other way.
To Masonmom, Is the treatment different for your husband with the MS.
