Partial List of Lyme Misdiagnoses

From A to Z

Lucy Barnes

The controversy over Lyme disease continues to severely disadvantage those living with other medical conditions who may actually have Lyme and tick borne coinfections.

Please remember:

Lyme tests miss up to 75% of people with Lyme disease

1 month of antibiotics is not sufficient to help people with chronic Lyme disease

Tests for tick borne coinfections were not performed prior to most studies

Certain University based doctors / academia are driven by funding and must cling tight to the long disproved theory that Lyme is easy to diagnose and easy to cure

Funding for Lyme and tick borne disease research has been extremely poor

Countless people with Lyme (millions) have not had the results of their cases published

Those who have been receiving the majority of the research funding are part of a tight-knit group that has little to no experience with actual patients

Many in the "tight-knit group" have financial interests in the outcome of Lyme research
