  • Can microbes and immune reactions to them actually contribute to cognitive decline, degenerative neurological disease, developmental disabilities, mental illness, personality changes and, at the most extreme, even violent and criminal behavior? (psychologytoday.com)
  • Although most patients with Lyme/tick-borne disease do not become violent, a small percent of patients who become infected develop a type of neurological dysfunction that can increase their risk of aggressiveness. (psychologytoday.com)
  • ALS is a motor neuron disease, also spelled "motor neurone disease", which is a group of neurological disorders that selectively affect motor neurons, the cells that control voluntary muscles of the body, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), primary lateral sclerosis, progressive muscular atrophy, progressive bulbar palsy, pseudobulbar palsy, and spinal muscular atrophy.

  • rash
  • The classic sign of early local infection with Lyme disease is a circular, outwardly expanding rash called erythema chronicum migrans (EM), which occurs at the site of the tick bite three to 32 days after the tick bite. (wikipedia.org)

  • patients
  • Generally, LD in its later stages can also be treated effectively, but because the rate of disease progression and individual response to treatment varies from one patient to the next, some patients may have symptoms that linger for months or even years following treatment. (aldf.com)
  • Many patients with Lyme disease have had a hard hit to their immune systems by this immune-suppressing infection and many of us have had to have gammaglobulin intravenously to help us fight the infection. (borrelioosi.net)
  • Use of bisphosphonates in patients with conditions or diseases affecting renal function is not recommended. (issuu.com)
  • early
  • Blood tests are often negative in the early stages of the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Failure of tetracycline therapy in early Lyme disease. (borrelioosi.net)
  • LD manifests itself as a multisystem inflammatory disease that affects the skin in its early, localized stage, and spreads to the joints, nervous system and, to a lesser extent, other organ systems in its later, disseminated stages. (aldf.com)
  • inflammatory
  • The tumor necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK)/Fn14 pathway has been involved in chronic human inflammatory pathologies such as neurodegenerative, autoimmune, or malignant diseases. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • case
  • Co-existance of toxoplasmosis and neuroborreliosis - a case report. (borrelioosi.net)
  • Case studies are discussed whereby persons who tested positive for Lyme on antibody tests ALSo showed classic ALS symptoms including denervation, atrophy, weakness, bulbar involvement, dysarthria, ataxia and so on. (borrelioosi.net)
  • This study suggests that all persons diagnosed with ALS be suspect for having Lyme disease as this particular case study individual had her diagnosis changed from ALS to Lyme. (borrelioosi.net)
  • laboratory
  • In Lyme disease, much debate exists about laboratory kits, the alteration of kits to have fewer possible bands, and which labs are optimally sensitive and specific. (lymebook.com)
