| | My mom tested positive for Lyme after ALS diagnosed.
My mother, a 59 year old woman was diagnosed with ALS last August, then tested positive for Lyme via a lab in the US (tested negative in Canada). However, her symptoms are more similar to ALS and taking intense antiobiotics caused her to lose weight and more muscle strength. Consequently, she stopped and is currently taking glyconutrients. There seems to be a group of people on Yahoo that have an ALS/Lyme community. Is it coincidence that these two illnesses occur together? I doubt it. However, to my knowledge there are no health professionals who treat both at the same time. So, does anyone have any suggestions what we should do next?
We are confused and frustrated at the lack of a clear treatment direction, however we are grateful that her muscle wasting is slow enough for us to enjoy quality family time together.
By faith and prayers we live each day!
