THE DIZZYING SPIRAL THAT IS LYME DISEASE

The Dizzying Spiral that is Lyme Disease:

 

The Dizzying Spiral

 

To give you an idea, I have paid out-of-pocket for every single doctor’s visit, lab test, medication, supplement, herb and Lyme treatment for the past 4 years, amounting to tens of thousands of dollars.

All illnesses have their difficulties.  What makes chronic Lyme unique from other diseases though is that expenses are almost always out-of-pocket.  Most insurance companies do not cover the cost of treatment for chronic Lyme cases.  This places an unimaginable amount of financial burden and strain on a patient and their family year after year.  A recent study revealed that over 40% of Lyme Disease patient’s are unable to work.  This same study demonstrated that chronic Lyme sufferers have a quality of life that is worse than many other illnesses like congestive heart failure, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and arthritis.
