There are many neuropsychiatric manifestations of Lyme disease. The link below offers an excellent selection of papers and articles on this subject. There has been a couple of possible rage related attacks in the news lately that may be linked to the effects of Lyme disease on the brain. There are also many patients in mental hospitals who probably don't need to be there. Their condition could be related to Lyme.....as lyme does infect the brain causing different symptoms in different people. Neuropsychiatric lyme can be treated successfully with the proper antibiotics, in the proper dosage for a long enough period of time. There appears to be a concerted effort to cover up the many diseases and conditions that Lyme can play a role in.....including Autism, CFS, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, ALS, Lupus, M.S. ADHD, Bipolar depression, Arthritis.....and the list goes on.
The different disease groups need to band together to see what elements they have in common and become one united force. As it is now, we are broken up into all these separate disease labels...according only to symptoms. Each disease label has it's own Charity which collects money to find cures. However, if you will notice...none of these charity groups ever does find a cure....only symptomatic treatments. Also , most of these chronic conditions have no definitive tests. If true causes were found then cures would be more likely....however, the medical industrial complex does not make money and survive on cures.
