The Doctor of last resort - no truer words were written about those pioneering doctors who treat patients with Chronic Lyme Disease and other tick borne illnesses.

Through CALDA blog here I was able to read all three of these excellent articles in The Roanoke Times.

Lost in the Woods Navigating the Chronic Lyme Debate by Beth Macy

In search of hope, facts here
Salvos launched in Lyme debate here and
The Doctor of last resort here
plus the excellent video here

One day I look forward to seeing similar articles run in our UK Media, the dearth of good investigative journalism on chronic Lyme isn't for lack of trying or lack of patient experiences.

Until then how many patients with symptoms of arthritis, neurological problems, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and many more health problems will ever realise that like me their symptoms were related to that tiny tick that bit them years before.

More importantly how many doctors will consider as a differential diagnosis.

    Hope you are doing okay? No posts lately on either blog so I was hoping you were not sick, but just taking a break....
    Happy New Year!
