I don't think we are ever cured from Lyme disease. We are put into remission, like you stated above. I believe that sometimes, yes, the bacteria could be hiding somewhere in the body, especially if you have Chronic Lyme disease, and come back out later when you are off of medication. It is very hard to eradicate when it is chronic because it gets inside the tissue, muscle, bone, brain, etc. That's why most LLMD's use a combination of antibiotics and others like Flagyl to bust open the cyst form. Sometimes though, we are left with the devastation that the bacteria has caused and that could be where some of the symptoms are coming from.
