lyme disease and autism

Posted by @bigbird in Brain & Nervous System, Nov 7, 2012

I was at our recent lyme disease support group and one of our members did a small study on lyme disease and autism, what a breakthrough, his son at about six months old started showing signs of autism, was told by mayo Dr.s that his son was autistic and would not take it for a answer. Found five other children between the age of one and ten and had them all tested for lyme disease with the western blot test. All came back positive for lyme disease and were put on antibiotics long term by I.v. All have science shown complete to remarkable improvement. With the best being the sooner they started the treatment. It is time a larger survey is done and keep the medical moneymakers away and maybe we can stop this disease.

Lyme disease is a commonly misdiagnosed bacterial illness generally passed through the bite of ticks and other biting insects. Personal injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle medical error lawsuits against hospitals and doctors in cases involving the failure to timely diagnose Lyme Disease.

If Lyme Disease is diagnosed in a timely manner, significant damage and injury can be avoided with proper treatment. This treatment includes the use of antibiotics (often intravenous) and penicillin depending on the age of the patient . The goal is to fight the disease before there is serious damage to the nervous system.

When a doctor or hospital fails to diagnose a patient with signs and symptoms of Lyme Disease, it can give rise to the filing of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
