Article about Lyme and neuropsychiatic symptoms.

Posted by SLS on December 14, 2021, at 9:09:11

Neuropsychiatric symptoms in Lyme Disease:

"A Clinical Diagnostic System for Late-Stage Neuropsychiatric Lyme
Borreliosis Based upon an Analysis of 100 Patients:"

"Patients had minimal symptoms pre-infection, but a high post-infection prevalence of a broad spectrum of acquired multisystem symptoms. These findings included impairments of attention span, memory, processing, executive functioning, emotional functioning, behavior, psychiatric syndromes, vegetative functioning, neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, upper respiratory, dental, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and other symptoms. The most prevalent symptoms included sustained attention impairments, brain fog, unfocused concentration, joint symptoms, distraction by frustration, depression, working memory impairments, decreased school/job performance, recent memory impairments, difficulty prioritizing multiple tasks, fatigue, non-restorative sleep, multitasking difficulties, sudden mood swings, hypersomnia, mental apathy, decreased social functioning, insomnia, tingling, word finding difficulties, name retrieval, headaches, sound hypersensitivity, paresis, anhedonia, depersonalization, cold intolerance, body temperature fluctuations, light sensitivity and dysfluent speech."


The lead author has been studying Lyme and its neuropsychiatric symptoms this for over a decade. To my knowledge, he has been ahead of the curve. In his opinion, a large percentage of cases of depression are actually symptoms of Lyme. I am just a bit skeptical of this whenever I have discussions with him about Lyme. His observations and hypotheses are compelling, though.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
