Re: Last stages of ALS---question
we visited a lymes disease doc after my husband was diagnosed with als in nov. he told us that he believed tim had lymes but also didnt take the als diagnosis away. he said he believes in some way the two are connected, but doesnt know exactly how-- is lymes late stage als or vice versa. he was very honest. he stated his belief was based on the use of anitbiotics in the current trials to treat als, and some getting a good response.
Now, our als specialist deny that they have any relation to each other. they say it's never been shown to have any connection.
tim tried several antibiotics for 5 months, and showed no positive changes. in fact, symptoms have gotten worse.
best of luck to you and your friend.
