Just wondering if anyone has had this happen or a similar situation.  My husband just turned 50 in December.  He has been diagnosed with Lyme since 03 but his LD feels he went for about 8 years untreated. 
We were told his initial bite was a spider bite.
Any information would be appreciated

I had developed it badly. I was about a level 5. They told me at the clinic that the lyme can do this to people. It all went away very quickly. Not sure if it was the ozone treatment or all of the supplements that they had me put on the day I started there.
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.

Martha's Vinyard -

Thanks - What type of treatment are you using and did you have a PET scan done when you thought you had Alzheimer's.  Any help would be great.

I was told the same thing , I did have a SPect Scan which showed hypoperfusion , I had a hard time recognizing people, judging distance, couldnt cross the street myself after I almost walked into a moving vehicle and 2 people pulled me back, took a shower and my kids had to remind me to get out of the shower, got my kids ready for the bus and forgot to send them get the picture, I am fine now, maybe some mild memory issues but I had that before Lyme Disease struck, I am working and taking care of my large family full time, do not accept what the doctors say, please see a LLMD and get him started on antibiotics, it took time for me to get back but its all worth it!
