Dr. Daniel Cameron: Inside Lyme Podcast

Four Lyme disease patients develop Post Treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS).

Dr. Cameron feels that the best way to get to know Lyme disease is through reviewing actual cases. In this Inside Lyme Podcast episode, he will be discussing four Lyme disease patients who developed Post Treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS).

Wormser and colleagues first described these four cases in the journal Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease in 2019.

Wormser and colleagues set out to prove that 14 days of amoxicillin would be safe and effective.  

At least four of their 24 patients remain ill on follow-up. They were diagnosed with Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS). 

Wormser and colleagues did not report symptoms important to Lyme disease patients. The list includes fatigue, poor sleep, impaired concentration, headaches, lightheadedness, neck and joint pain, muscle pain, and paresthesias. Paresthesias refer to numbness and tingling or a“pins-and-needles” sensation.

Nor did Wormser and colleagues describe other complications of Lyme disease important to patients. This list includes Lyme encephalopathy, Lyme neuropathy, Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS), and Neuropsychiatric Lyme disease.  

You can hear more about these cases through his blogs, social media, and YouTube. Sign up for our newsletter to keep up with these cases.
