: i have been told to have end stage lyme you must have severe arthritis. i have all symptoms except
: SEVERE arthritis. can you have end stage (neurological involvement) without this. Also would like
: advice on dr. please feel free to e-mail. gouldsthe@hotmail.com

Yes you can have late stage Lyme without arthritis. There are differnt strains of the spirochette
(bacteria) that affect you differently...hence, much of the confusion. Probably only about 1/3 of the Lyme
suferers have severe arthritis. Do you have central nervous systom problems? Lyme can mimick
many diseases.
