Parin vuosikymmenen ajan kirjallisuuudessa, tutkimuksissa ja potilaiden henkilökohtaisissa kokemuksissa on esiintynyt kannanottoja joissa MS-oireiden aiheuttajaksi on epäilty mm. borreliabakteeria. Alla olevaa henkilöä hoidettiin 9 1/2 vuoden ajan MS-tautidiagnoosilla. Vasta jonkin aika sitten hän sai tietää oireidensa johtuvan hoitamattomasta borrelioosista. Nyt hän etsii kohtalotovereita.

Unanswered questions justify the need for more scientific research

Tammy Szczepanskin kertomus:
I was treated for secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and then for primary progressive MS for nine and a half years before I found a Lyme-literate doctor and discovered that the reason for my MS symptoms was untreated Lyme disease.
I am looking for others around the world who were told they had MS and who learned that the culprit behind their MS symptoms was Lyme or one of the co-infections. I am trying to get as many names and stories of people who were treated for MS to only learn the culprit behind the MS symptoms was a tick-borne illness.
I want physicians to treat MS with antibiotics instead of steroids which suppress the immune system and make the Lyme stronger.
I gave my testimony on January 29 to the attorney general for my state of Connecticut. What is going on is a huge injustice to so many of us, and I feel if all the groups all over the world work together we can make changes.
