How can they tell difference in Lyme Disease and Masters Disease.
Masters disease and Lyme disease are basically the same, just caused by different type of Borrelia. Masters disease is caused by Borrelia lonestari. They're still Borrelia spirochetes.
I don't know if many labs are capable of testing for Borrelia lonestari or if the antibodies produced would be different. I assume so, because apparently people with Masters disease don't test positive to Lyme disease.
