Lymes Disease Misdiagnosed As Mantle Cell Lymphoma
Can acute late stage Lyme disease get misdiagnosed with among other things as dissociative identity disorder (traumatic past)?
Lyme affects brain:
Acute lyme is recent onset. Late stage lyme often includes neuroborreliosis, lyme infecting the brain. This can manifest as a variety of psychiatric symptoms. Those with past trauma will have a harder time healing from this if they have neuro lyme. Few with lyme have diss. Identity disorder- if they do, address not just lyme but history of trauma. See

Chronic symptoms can include fibromyalgia symptoms, nerve pain in extremities, mood swings, brain fog, heart problems. Lab diagnoses are not very reliable, and sometimes clinical ...Read more
Is there a link between dissociative identity disorder and acute chronic Lyme disease? Can a person have both & can did be misdiagnosed?
I doubt it: With ulcerative colitis you really need to be having diarrhea with blood in it. Most lyme disease doesn't do this. I think the main connection would be fever and joint pain, which you can see with both. But I would imagine that UC would not commonly be mistaken for lyme disease. ...Read more
Multiple imbalances: Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria have the most complex genome of any bacteria & create multiple imbalances. They can infect any organ & prevent that organ from functioning properly & elicit an inflammatory response. They suppress immune function, often opening the door for other infections, produce microbial toxins, create hormonal imbalances etc. See http://ldnr. Us/lyme_disease_pathophysiology. Html. ...Read more
May be related to it: It could be related to your inflamation - especially any vascular issues. This will depend on the manfestations that you are having. You can discuss that with your physician. ...Read more
Bite of infected tic: Lime disease is spread by ticks that have acquired the germ in the past and it stays in their system. A tick bite from another of the same species without the LD germ will not do it. The tick must get on your body, settle in for a feeding & feed long enough to pass the germ to you (hours). ...Read more
See below: Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria called borrelia burgdorferi, named after the scientist willy burgdorfer who discovered the bacterial pathogen - a spirochete (spiral appearing bacteria). It is transmitted by tick saliva but primarily only after being embedded for at least 48 hours. It causes disease by infecting many types of cells and destroying their function. ...Read more
Find willing doctor: Of course you can but you need to find a doctor to order the test. There are many tests for lyme. I strongly advise getting the igg &igm western blot test from igneex. Many docs start with the lisa test that misses at least half who have it &other labs do incomplete western blot tests. See http://betterhealthguy. Com/lyme/testing. ...Read more
See Lyme-literate MD: Lyme disease is surprisingly common but can be hard to diagnose. Most md's aren't too knowledgeable about it & may do a screening test that misses over half the cases & say you don't have it. No test is definitive- it's ultimately a clinical diagnosis. It's best to see a "lyme-literate" doc-see www. Chroniclymedisease. Com/llmd-referrals for an overview: www. Lymediseaseresource. Com/burrguide2008.Pdf. ...Read more
Bacterial Infection: Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is transmitted through a type of tick. The bacteria can cause alot of things from a simple rash, to fevers, joint pain to more serious things such as meningitis and heart problems. If you think you were bitten by a tick or have lyme disease, please see your doctor. It's very easily treatable as long as you don't wait. ...Read more
Borrelia bacteria: Lyme disease is an infection caused by a bacteria, borrelia burgdorferi. It is usually transmitted by deer ticks & the longer the tick is attached the greater the chance of infection. However, about half of those with lyme do not recall being bitten by a tick. It is proven that stinging flies can transmit it & possibly spiders, mosquitoes etc. It may be sexually transmitted & passed to babies in utero. ...Read more
Many possibilities: Lyme is a complex illness. Many with lyme have co-infections like babesia & bartonella, as well as chronic sinusitis, intestinal parasites & candidiasis. Antibiotic treatment can increase symptoms by creating die-off (toxicity from killed bacteria) and imbalances of gastrointestinal flora, leading to food allergies. Like all illness, stress can also aggravate symptoms and having lyme is stressful! ...Read more
Different types of:
Lyme disease, the most common vector-borne illness in the United States, is a multisystem illness caused by infection with the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi.
There are different types of Lyme disease. Early it can be the rash in some people - called erythema chronicum migrans - which is circular. There are many clincial manifestations. Signs and symptoms of Lyme disease vary by disease stage. Physical findings in patients with early disease are as follows:
Erythema migrans (EM) - Rash
Tender local adenopathy (local, not diffuse)
Physical findings in patients with early disseminated disease are as follows:
EM (single or multiple lesions)
Tender adenopathy (regional or generalized)
Conjunctivitis (uncommon, never prominent)
Carditis (usually manifests as heart block)
Meningismus as a sign of aseptic meningitis
Cranioneuropathy, especially cranial nerve VII and Bell palsy (peripheral seventh nerve palsy with decreased unilateral function, including the forehead) ...Read more
All of them can last: Lyme disease is a chronic infection. It can affect any organ system in the body. It does not go away on its own, so symptoms will last your entire life, often progressively spreading and worsening, unless it is effectively treated. The longer it is present before starting treatment the longer it can take to treat effectively & some authorities feel it may be impossible to fully eradicate in some cases. ...Read more
Please see below.: Early symptoms of lyme disease can include rash, flulike illness characterized by fever, chills, achy muscles or joints, headache, and malaise. In the area of the tick bite, lymph nodes can be enlarged and tender. Later, facial paralysis, meningitis, arthritis, and/or arrhythmias may develop. ...Read more
Bacterial infection: Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria, borrelia burgdorferi & is commonly thought to be transmitted by deer ticks. However, half of those proven to have lyme don't recall being bitten by a tick. It is proven that lyme can be transmitted by biting flies & possibly by mosquitoes, fleas, spiders etc. It can be transmitted in utero to babies & probably sexually. It can cause many symptoms.
