My dad was just diagnosed last week with ALS. i'm busy trying to educate myself. I keep hearing about the als/lyme's connection. does anyone have knowledge about this? what about help paying for rilutek. it would be over $1000 monthly for my parents
so they don't want to take it. is there anyway to help a retired person on medicare get the meds cheaper?
thanks, starla

check out the website www.nord.com
you may be able to get help with the meds that way.
if your dad goes to a als clinic there may be a social worker
there that can help as well.
as far as lymes, dad will need a blood test to determine that. lymes
usually hits 3 joints unlike als which is a slow pregression of loss of
muscle. hope this helps
