Some believe Lyme Disease is Chronic, others do not, it depends on which Doctor you go to as to what their diagnosis is going to be.

This almost sounds like hiking and camping almost as dangerous as a Charlie Sheen life style.

They're trying to force everyone back into bowling alleys.

What do you mean "Government created disease like HIV"?

Are you saying the government made HIV?

I used to hear that one back in the 90's but once additional testing and genetic work was done on it, the international scientific community states that HIV has been around since before Penecillian and pre-dates technology to create it by probably a century or multiples thereof.

"Some said..." I am not one of those who said that.

I contracted Lyme's disease twice. The first time around five or six years ago. I did not go to the doctor for about a year; by that time my joints were so painful it was hard to walk. I got treatment for it, which would have been more effective if I had gotten it right away. A few years later, I got another tick bite, got a blood test, and got the treatment right away.

I am still suffering from the effects of Lyme's disease.

Please tell me who I can sue. I want my ten million dollars!

How long did your joint pain last? Should people with once or twice joint pain be alarme?

What kind of treatments are you getting now and how are you still suffering?

Lyme disease is real. Those that seek disability love this sort of thing.

OTOH, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia are common in developed countries whereas patients from 3rd world countries never get it.

Because ticks are strongly attracted to carbon dioxide I'm surprised they haven't been flooding into metropolitan areas.

Maybe they have an aversion to carbon monoxide.
