Re: LNE definitions of late and chronic Lyme disease

Yes or no, please. Simple question. Is that how you understand how people here have been using the term or not? Remember that the US diagnosis chronic Lyme disease is used (at least it has been in this forum) for symptoms that have lasted for a long time =it is the symptoms that are chronic after tr...

Re: LNE definitions of late and chronic Lyme disease

"Carina": I am not discussing this any more, since you now use those two words that it have been so much problems with in this forum. Spanky: "Do YOU think that is what they mean when they use the expression "chronic Lyme"? LOOK at the topic...this is where it would be appropriate to discuss it. The...

Re: LNE definitions of late and chronic Lyme disease

"Carina": One more answer to Spankys question (in the post above): From the first post (in this topic): Chronic Lyme disease = persistent symptoms associated with Lyme disease after "appropriate" antibiotic treatment, without clinical evidence of persistent Lyme disease. I am asking YOU, Carina...do...

Re: ILADS Conference--Speakers' fees?

What I am looking for, here, is something that can cross-react on a Lyme screen...an infection...that causes cardio...neuro...and arthritic symptoms. Anyone? Anyone have any good suspects, candidates? And, as a reminder...there are questions pending that haven't been answered...I would like to hear ...

Re: Antitrust law

"duncan": Spanky: "...not realizing that Lymeland is a very insular, isolated, artificial environment, and not at all representative of the real world out there." How does a situation like that get undone? If you change the opinion of the upper echelon of the organization through reason is one way. ...

Re: Lyme Bacterial Endocarditis -First Case Report

"Lorima": Are you sure it's wise to speak in public, in that manner? Many Lyme, and other, patients already suspect that there is more contempt than compassion for your patients , in the particular silo of mainstream medicine you and your colleagues have created . You are substantiating this impress...

Re: ILADS Conference--Speakers' fees?

"RitaA": On that very positive note, I hope you have a great day biking tomorrow. Thanks! I tell you...it is soooo great. The last ten years were so bad...and this is like being let out of school early. Never imagined during that time that I would ever feel this good again. Sometimes it is just...in...

Re: ILADS Conference--Speakers' fees?

"Claudia": Spanky: "And there are some 'interesting' psychologies on display at times..." Yes, indeed. (Sigh). Claudia... I'm sorry. You can attack my diagnosis all that you like. I don't care. Doesn't bother me. My doctors were the ones who made the diagnosis. Not me. Why on earth would you think t...
