Lyme Disease TreatmentAug 02, 2012
I am looking for any information in how you (or someone close to you maybe) was treated for Lyme disease.  Was it done only with antibiotics, pulsed antibiotics, or something else?  My sister-in-law is really in a bad way with this. She apparently has neuropathic pain too and nothing seems to be helping it.  She's hardly gotten out of bed in 2 wk.  Any experiences, suggestions, ideas, would be much appreciated. Thank you. ...

This is the hospital I worked in for years. I also was a patient over the years. Sometimes our little hospital has to send people there if they cannot provide the right services (ours a little hospital). Latest on this is that the person got Legionnaire's from the hospital. They were not at all sure of how he acquired it. On the local news, they said no one would say the condition of the man, but that he had been extremely sick. Said the tests won't come back for at least 10 days, ...
