Default Re: Misdiagnosing ALS

I don't think it is common practice to scan for Lyme. I don't remember it even being mentioned.
I have spent a fair amount on time in campgrounds , but once again never encountered the bulls eye rash.
And have been told it's hard not to realize you have been bit.
I am also under the understanding that by the time notable muscle weakness has been caused by Lyme there is not that much that can be done and the is still speculation (unproven either way) that it may proceed to ALS ..
