Imagine feeling sick and never getting better, no matter how many doctors you see or how many treatments you receive. Such is the plight of thousands and thousands of people who suffer from chronic Lyme disease—and don’t even know it. If you have achy joints, digestive issues, headaches, fatigue, memory or concentration problems and/or other chronic ailments, Lyme disease could be slowly degrading your immune system. The longer it goes untreated, the greater impact it will have on your long-term health. Before you tell yourself that you’re in the clear, consider this—Lyme disease occurs in more than 300,000 Americans each year, but only a fraction of these people are correctly diagnosed. Many patients suffer unnecessarily because the symptoms of Lyme are too often mistaken for other conditions, says Bottom Line’s Richard Horowitz, MD, a pioneer in the study of Lyme disease and chronic illness. His book Why Can’t I Get Better? is the most comprehensive guide to managing this debilitating chronic illness. Having the proper information about this incredibly complicated disease is your key to wellness.
