Lyme Disease Science Conversations:
Conversations on Facebook with a leading Lyme disease expert, Dr. Daniel Cameron, about the latest discoveries and advancements in Lyme disease and associated illnesses.
Investigators describe several pleomorphic forms which develop along Borrelia burgdorferi’s lifecycle.
They suggest that many of the ongoing controversies related to Lyme disease pathogenesis and treatment strategies could be resolved by improving our understanding of B. burgdorferi biology and evolution.

WNY kids eligible for Lyme vaccineChildren can enroll in a clinical study of Pfizer’s new Lyme disease vaccine run through the Department of Pediatrics at UB.
I wonder how many children in NY are already infected with lyme and just don't know it. And how might getting a vaccine for a disease they already have impact their health?
What about the coinfections? Lyme itself has been the least of my problems. And I don't trust Lyme vaccines after what happened with the first one. Certainly wouldn't be signing up anyone in my family.
Thoughts? With this brain fog?? After reading all the books...and knowing the politics of it all....F NO!!!!!!!!!! After injury of family members...to toxic components...no more things put in us and WE ARE NOT GUINEA PIGS!!!!!!
I sure wish there had been one available before I got bitten and sick
NO NO NO RUN
Enjoy the nice weather Dr. Cameron... advocate insect repellent..I use Essential oils to ward off ticks when outdoors. I use www.doterra.com

Intravenous antibiotics helpful for PTLDS - Daniel Cameron, MD, MPHStudy finds intravenous antibiotic treatment with ceftriaxone may be the best choice for treatment of PTLDS.
So they’ve shown that PTLDS is actually persistent infection aka Chronic Lyme Disease like we’ve all been saying all along. Thanks Dr. Cameron!
Getting insurance to approve antibiotics and a PICC line is nearly impossible. Was any other antibiotic or antiparasitic given? Thnx for the article!
It was the only thing that worked for me! Thank you Dr. Daniel Cameron!!!
Surprisingly we found Ampicillin did better than the rest. Our results may be different because we also have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Dysautonomia, MTHFR gene, MCAS. The response was immediate and kept getting better. We had also used Ceftriaxone, Penicillin by IV and injections. Ampicillin was a game changer for us. All 3 kids.
Seems to be very successful for most, with the least amount of side effects.
What’s your treatment for Covid??
PTLDS is not a diagnosis listed in WHO'S codes so it is quackery.. Right is Chronic Lyme disease and WHO code ICD11.
It was for my daughter, Steph Schaffer
Sorry but no to antibiotics. Ivermectin, MMS, Ozone, Sauna, Rife machines, Homeopathy or a combination of the above is a yes.

Yes it's too bad insurance didn't pay for my treatment of Chronic Lymes! It's ridiculous that this is been around so long and now the CDC is discussing it!!
This is terrible wrong what it says in article! "If you do find a tick, pull it straight out with tweezers." The tweezer will squeeze out what's in the ticks stomach, and then you will absolute get sick!
I just came back from my house doctor. I got bad news. My neck and spine is just a mess. She has to send me to surgery. I asked her - once again this a hughe surgery, will it cure my brain fog and neck pain that is one of the most symptoms for Lyme, and as you know, I have a medical history of chronic Lyme? She said - do not mention Lyme for the doctors/surgeons, patients with Lyme scares away doctors.

“Given the erythema migrans lesion at the site from which the engorged tick was removed, we made a presumptive diagnosis of Lyme disease and administered IV ceftriaxone,” the authors write.

Hmmm...it will be interesting to follow up on.
Kinda strange; ”There are more than 500,000 new cases of Lyme disease each year, according to statistics released in 2018 by the CDC. As a result of the difficulty in diagnosing and treating Lyme disease, up to two million Americans may be suffering from the impact of its debilitating long-term symptoms and complications” If there is 500.000 new cases/year and “up to two million Americans may be suffering” - we are talking about 4 years only it’s like US only had ticks in last 4 years. It has to be way much more than 2 millions tortured. Cohen foundation is a blessing so is everyone trying to help all the walking dead’s. ❤️

In Sweden they dont test for it. Only one place in Sweden that can. Public health care is like a horror movie never ending.

I treated Babesia 5 times with 5 different LLMDs. Finally in remission for a year and a half now. I’m so grateful

Have a good week.
Unfortunately nobody will try IV antibiotics even when they know you have a history of Lyme and AV block and were young and healthy. I had AV block. I’ve been to at least 6 cardiologists. I was a young, healthy, competitive runner in my 20’s with CDC positive Lyme and if you cannot pay out of pocket for iv antibiotics from a Lyme doctor, the mainstream cardiology profession does not attempt antibiotics before the pacemaker. I have had lyme since 2011. Pacemaker since 2015 and 100% pacing. Never had any doctors even do a few days of iv antibiotics.
In Sweden they believe they can find Lyme carditis with EKG. It is scary how little public health has knowledge about Lyme. Today I reported public health for malpractice. My documentation is over 50 pages. They will do nothing because they know they are doing wrong when following the stone age IDSA guidelines.

Thinking about it and reading about Lyme can cause a stroke!
If I'm being completely honest... The use of the words "endemic areas for Lyme disease" makes the author significantly less credible to me😞 If you're truly Lyme literature, you KNOW that Lyme is everywhere. The ignorant belief that "There is no Lyme in........." is one of the main reasons that many can't get treatment.
