Fox News is reporting that the gunman who killed a pastor in a St. Louis, Illinois church this weekend was suffering from mental illness brought on by Lyme disease. I haven't been able to find any corroborating stories from other news agencies yet. Stories like this terrify me given my own struggles with mood swings since I became ill. Has anyone else heard about this?

I signed up for Google alerts on Lyme disease, and there are alot of stories about it.  He had lesions on the brain, and there was a story about his struggle with LD in their local paper.  It will be interesting to see what comes of this.  Such a sad story all around.  My thoughts and prayers are with all involved.
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day  5 months 
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol

Here is one story about it:  Church shooting suspect has mental illness from Lyme disease 
In the article, there is another link you can click on for a story done in August 2008 called "Lym disease diagnosis can be difficult"
