CDC/IDSA's Dismissal of 
Chronic Lyme Disease

From CDC- "It is not uncommon for patients treated for Lyme disease with a recommended 2 to 4 week course of antibiotics to have lingering symptoms of fatigue, pain, or joint and muscle aches at the time they finish treatment. In a small percentage of cases, these symptoms can last for more than 6 months. Although sometimes called "chronic Lyme disease," this condition is properly known as "Post-treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome" (PTLDS)."

OUR POSITION- We call it what it is, CHRONIC Lyme disease. Other conditions that last for more than 6 months are referred to as "CHRONIC" and treated as the same disease the patient started with, so why not Lyme disease?
