The Connection between Lyme Disease and Multiple Sclerosis

The Lyme Disease/MS Connection

Is there a connection between Lyme disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?  As a patient of Lyme disease who talks to many patents who have been diagnosed with one or the other, or both, I started collecting any relevant articles to this discussion.

Rather, I should call it a debate.  Lyme disease patients insist that MS is really just Lyme disease misdiagnosed. Many MS patients that I have talked to  think it is a totally independent disease from Lyme disease.

Sadly, after twenty years of having Lyme disease, I still cannot talk to many doctors about this without being met with an eye roll.

But, maybe we are looking at it wrong.  Since Borrelia Burgdorferi and some other bacterial infections and viruses, as well as parasites, all seem to infect people differently, maybe these infection lead to these “conditions” or “syndromes.”

Maybe instead of calling it a misdiagnosis we should be saying, Lyme induced MS, Lyme induced Parkinson’s,  Lyme induced Dementia, Lyme induced Fibromyalgia, Lyme induced Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. You get the point.

I propose this for two reasons.

  1. It has been shown that Borrelia Burgdorferi disseminates throughout the body and can cause damage in multiple organs, soft tissues and joints. So, maybe it depends on where the bacteria is destroying tissues to which condition it will lead to in each person. This would help patients and the medical community understand why we have such a wide range of symptoms. It would explain why some end up with Fibromyalgia and another MS.
  2. This way we leave it open to the possibility that other infections, viruses and parasites might also lead to these conditions and syndromes also. There is research that shows Epstein-Barr Virus, Chlamydial Pneumonia as well as Bartonella, Babesia and many others can lead to chronic conditions.

Here are some of the articles, research papers and discussions I have collected over the years relevant to Lyme disease being connected to MS.

Please make sure to check out the Lyme Deaths VS MS Deaths Map.

Please let me know in the comments below your own experience or if you know of other good research papers or articles. We would also love teo hear from doctors and naturopaths who treat MS/Lyme patients and what your opinion is on this subject.

  1. I have fibromyalgia, and it was painful on some days. I took methocarbamol to relieve the pain. Sometimes it helps and other days it doesn’t. I had it for almost 16 years, there was no cure. So I had to live with it the best that I could. The symptoms I had were Muscle Pains, mood swings, and difficulty falling asleep.There has been little if any progress in finding a cure or reliable treatment. April this year my brother In law who’s an M.D suggested I started on Natural Herbal Gardens Fibromyalgia Herbal formula which eased my anxiety a bit,We ordered their Fibro herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i started on natural alternative Fibromyalgia DISEASE treatment from ( w w w. naturalherbalgardens . c o m ) the treatment worked very effectively, i am happy to report with the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs my severe symptoms simply vanished, i feel better now, this alternative fibromyalgia disease treatment is a breakthrough.Visit Natural Herbal Gardens official website This Herbal Protocol is Incredible, I have never been this Healthier!!

  2. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis MS in 2011 after a 2nd bout with optic neuritis (right eye). Same neurologist/same treatment (Avonex) until just last month i was introduce to Total cure herbal foundation who help me get rid of the MS totally you can search for them on Google! So many other doors are open since seeking a herbal natural formula.I honestly went through over 100 doctors if not more. I suffered what seemed to be a stroke but was told it wasn’t a stroke. I found out through a spinal tap that I had MS..this herbal foundation was my survival; Totalcureherbalfoundation gmailcom
    Never give up!

  3. After my Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis 2 years ago, i stopped all the Multiple sclerosis medicines prescribed due to severe side effects, and decided to go on natural herbal approach. My primary care provider introduced me to Rich Herbs Foundation and i immediately started on their Multiple Sclerosis herbal formula treatment, this herbal treatment has made a tremendous difference for me. My symptoms including shaking, muscle weakness, fatigue, mood swings, numbness, double vision and urinary retention all disappeared after the 4 months treatment! Their website is ww w. richherbsfoundation. com. Its just amazing!

  4. There’s a big theory, and it’s just a theory, that says that most poeple, or everyone have the lyme disease bacteria within them, and that most people live cohesively with it. Other people that have bodies that are toxic or unbalanced have an extreme immune system response that effects the body in negative ways and shows the ridiculous symptoms that are lyme disease. If our bodies are in their healthiest possible state, we will not show symptoms, suffer, or be at the begging mercy of lyme. Many people with lyme disease aren’t absorbing nutrients well, and they have nutrient deficiencies.

  5. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age 50. I was still mobile but use a cane. I had balance issues and some falling. I only took baclofen as the injectable medicine did not seem to help. I was about to try other oral medicines.There has been little if any progress in finding a cure or reliable treatment. My multiple sclerosis got significantly worse and unbearable because of my cognitive thinking.. Last year, i started on a natural multiple sclerosis Herbal therapy from Green House Herbal Clinic, i read a lot of positive reviews from patients who used the treatment and i immediately started on it. I had great relief with this herbal treatment. I am doing very much better now, no case of Cognitive thinking or memory Loss,, my multiple sclerosis condition is totally reversed.
