Dr. Daniel Cameron: Inside Lyme Podcast

Lyme disease forces a 24-year-old army officer out of the military.

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 a 24-year-old army officer who was forced out of the military due to Lyme disease.

Weiss and colleagues first described this case in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Disease Society in 2017.

The 24-year-old young man initially suffered from recurrent knee swelling. Doctors diagnosed Lyme disease through after draining fluid from his knees.  He later developed severe fatigue, memory issues, headaches, sleep disturbances, and complaints of angina.

He failed to resolve his illness. “he was deemed unfit for duty,” wrote Weiss and colleagues.”

The authors concluded their paper with a discussion of post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS).
