What Makes Lyme Disease So Challenging to Treat?

Lyme disease was first discovered about 30 years ago in Lyme, Connecticut. Unfortunately, since then, Lyme disease has become the most undiagnosed and untreated epidemic in the world. Many people often attribute Lyme Disease to tick bites; However, recent studies have indicated that there are other ways people can get Lyme Disease such as mosquito bites, blood transfusions, and even gestationally (transmitted from mother to child). 

Furthermore, Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the spirochete (Borrelia burgdorferi) Lyme is consistently being misdiagnosed as a variety of ailments including but not limited to CFS, Fibromyalgia, MS, depression, bipolar disorder, Alzheimer’s, and ALS. Lyme disease is a severe condition where the disease can affect multiple areas of the body with symptoms appearing as early as 1 to 2 weeks after being bitten. After being bitten, a telltale sign begins with a red rash or a bulls-eye red ring not necessarily exclusive to the surrounding area of the bite.

Since Lyme infections can vary, and Lyme can manifest over 100 different symptoms with no two people being the same, many physicians do not even consider Lyme Disease as the problem. Even when testing is performed, standard testing misses over 90% of Chronic Lyme Disease cases. The reason for this is because the conventional methods of testing are designed to test for Acute Lyme Disease and not Chronic Lyme.

What Makes Us Different

At Brio-Medical, you are not alone! Many of our patients come to Brio-Medical with chronic Lyme disease and complain of “unusual” or “unexplained” symptoms that could not be explained by their doctor. As a matter of fact, some patients have said that after visiting their doctor numerous times, their physician told them that it was a psychological problem or that their symptoms were hypochondriacal in nature. A tick bite can be helpful for diagnosis; however, we have often found that many of our patients never recalled ever being bit by a tick. This does not surprise us because ticks are tiny, and in many cases, their bites are painless.

It Is Common For Lyme Disease To Be Misdiagnosed As Other Diseases

In a nutshell, Lyme Disease is very complicated. When the infection has had time to wreak havoc on the immune system, Lyme can trigger a wide range of symptoms. Because of this, it is not surprising that patients often bounce from one doctor to another without any relief of their symptoms. Even after being prescribed a growing list of medications.

Did you know that if you can relate to having several of these symptoms and you have had the possibility of exposure to infected ticks, then according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), you are clinically positive for Lyme Disease? 

Laboratory testing is helpful to validate, but since Lyme Disease is a clinical diagnosis, it is still possible to consider yourself positive for Lyme Disease even when your tests are negative.
