Default Re: Misdiagnosing ALS

I was told also that Lyme can lay dormant in adults until somthing triggers it.

That was why we persued answers to weather my father had Lyme for so long. Because he worked for the Ministry of natural resources and as a forrest fireman he had been exposed to tics many times but never got the caracteristic "bullseye" rash or anything.

His symptoms only appeared after a horrible viral infection that lasted months. After investigation and having done all the tests Lyme was ruled out but still I am glad we persued it so that we wouldn't be wondering about it.
