I'm sure other members with a lot more knowledge will be able to help you better.
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.
"Conditions": Lyme Disease, STARI, RMSF, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Neuro LD, FM, Chronic/acute EBV, IBS-C, Diverticulosis (& "itis") & now Lyme arthritis (?).
