How can I over come late stage Lyme disease..it has already hit my neurological system and damaged my nerves.

Treating co-infections like Bartonella is essential. You need the help of a good doc who specializes in this. Listen to http://betterhealthguy.com/dr-randy-baker-talk and see comment: ...Read more

Does a low cd57 nk result of 36 mean I have lyme disease? What else could it mean? I have many neurological symptoms and am scared of als or ms.
Can someone who had chronic Lyme disease and has been treated for it & still has neurological symptoms, bladder dysfunction & pain possibly have ms?
Multiple sclerosis: Yes. A person with treated lyme disease can develop multiple sclerosis. Having lyme disease does not protect your from having ms nor it increases the risk of having it either. Bladder dysfunction and pain are seen in many conditions and are not specific of multiple sclerosis. The diagnosis of ms may require certain period of observation or perhaps a lumbar puncture.

Could my Lyme disease headaches have just been dehydration?If I had Neurological Lyme wouldn't I have goten Bell's Palsy?Albumin 5.8, other labs norml
Perhaps, no: Lyme disease can cause any symptom, including headaches, but if you have Lyme it does not mean all your symptoms are caused by Lyme. Dehydration can cause headaches whether you have Lyme or not. If staying hydrated prevents your headaches they're probably not due to Lyme.And while many with Bell's Palsy have Lyme, most with Lyme don't get Bell's Palsy. High albumin is usually due to dehydration. ...Read more

Lyme disease can be treated with common antibiotics.

Classic symptom of bullseye rash only seen in half or less, then flu-like symptoms, then migrating joint pains (often 1st in knees), fatigue, poor memory/concentration, can't find right word, blurred vision.

Not necessarily: Lyme is a complex illness. Some who have it become quite ill, while others have mild symptoms. This depends on the strain of lyme bacteria, genetics of the patient, presence of co-infections like babesia & bartonella & factors that affect immune function like nutrition, parasites, heavy metals, mold exposure & stress.Thus, like adults, some children become quite ill but others have minimal symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
