 Please View VA Senate Fights for Lyme Patients

Lyme In The NewsAnonymous writes "
SB 971 passes the VA Senate and goes to the House of Delegates next week. Please view this video and show your support. We want to let legislators know that we are very interested in this bill passing the house. 

SB 971 would require physicians to inform patients that simply because they test negative on a standard Lyme disease test it doesn't mean they don't have Lyme and they should consider retesting. 

Please send this video to all those you you know will support our cause.

Andy is the Producer/Director of the Powerful Lyme Disease Documentary,"Under Our Skin".

"The Lyme community has lost an important hero and friend–and so did I. Leslie Wermers, 41, died from heart failure in her sleep on November 2nd, 2008." 

"It is hard to imagine Leslie’s heart giving out, because for anyone who knew her she was all heart." 

"A dear friend to so many and a tireless worker on behalf of the Minnesota and national Lyme communities, Leslie gave everything she had to help others who were sick. And everything she had was an abundant reserve of love and support–even as her own health waned." Andy Abrahams Wilson, Producer/Director, UNDER OUR SKIN Click Here to read the entire tribute and to watch Leslie's interview excerpt from  "Under Our Skin".

 LymeBlog News: Tom Seaver Fighting Lyme Disease

Lyme and SportsLymeBlog News
Lexington, KY USA
By LymeBlog News Staff

Tom Seaver, the legendary star of the New York Mets, is fighting Lyme disease. The condition was only made public after an apparent gaff by Seavers in June when he issued a press release congratulating Mets pitcher Johan Santana for pitching the first no-hitter in Mets history which included the statement, "I've never met Johan personally, ...". However, Seaver had previously been on air with Santana in a half hour TV special where they discussed pitching strategies. 

"I didn't know what was happening." said Seaver, 68. But it wasn't until he forgot the name of a man who has worked at Seaver's vineyard for 7 years that Seaver's wife, Nancy Seaver, insisted that he go see a doctor.

Seavers told Bill Madden of the New York Daily News, that after months of private denial, the scariest incident came when his head vineyard worker, who has been with him for seven years, came into the house one morning.

“I looked at him and I didn’t know his name,” Seaver said.

Seavers told Madden“I felt like I had the worst case of the flu every day, and then I was having trouble remembering things and making bad decisions. I was scared. I said to myself: ‘It’s like I’m getting old before my time. Why is this happening?’ I thought I’d had a stroke.”

Comprehensive test revealed that he did not have dementia or a stroke, as he had feared, but rather Stage 3 Lyme disease. 

Seavers had first contracted Lyme disease in 1991 while working in his garden at his residence in Connecticut. 

Stage 3 Lyme disease, which can occur months or years after the initial infection, can result in memory loss, speech problems, sleep disorder and an overall feeling of chemical imbalance — all of which Seaver had been experiencing over the last year.

“But once it gets into your blood system, it causes real problems,” Seaver said. “I’m taking 24 pills a day now, most of them vitamins, plus one penicillin pill to get my chemical balance back. It’s a cycle that kills off all the spirochetes that junk up your system. It’s been a slow process in which I’ll still feel like I have a bad case of the flu for days, but these past couple of weeks they’ve been less and less. I haven’t had a glass of wine or a beer in eight months and I don’t miss it."

 Opinion / Editorial: Distinct pattern of cognitive impairment noted in study of Lyme patients

Opinion / Editorial
Distinct Pattern of Cognitive Impairment Noted in Study of Lyme Patients Marian Rissenberg PhD & Susan Chambers MD, The Lyme Times, Vol. 20, Jan-Mar 1998, pp. 29-32
From: Melissa Kaplan'sChronic Neuroimmune Diseases
Information on CFS, FM, MCS, Lyme Disease, Thyroid, and more...


Synopsis: This study demonstrates that for the majority of chronic Lyme patients with cognitive complaints, there is in fact a measurable and significant decline in intellectual acuity. The nature and severity of the cognitive impairment is such that it interferes with all aspects of normal functioning: employment, home, marriage, social interactions, and general emotional well-being.


I. Cognitive Characteristics of Chronic Lyme Encephalopathy

On the basis of both a formal neuropsychological study of 49 patients (APA 5/96) and on clinical observation and comprehensive neuropsychological examination of well over 100 patients, a distinct pattern of cognitive impairment occurring chronic Lyme disease can be described. These patients consistently demonstrate deficits in directed, sustained and divided attention, planning and organization of responses, temporal ordering, verbal fluency, abstract reasoning, speed of processing, and motor programming. The overall pattern of intellectual impairment is not unlike that seen with diffuse brain injury, and it most often results in some degree of work-related disability.

Although performance is impaired on measures of cognitive functions associated with specific brain regions -- receptive and expressive language, visuospatial problem solving and memory -- the quality of performance is not suggestive of focal lesions in these areas. Rather, deficits are secondary to impairment of higher level integrative functions, likely mediated by complex neuronal systems. Specifically, the receptive language deficit is secondary to impaired auditory tracking and slowing of mental processing. The expressive language deficit is secondary to impaired word retrieval and response planning, The visuospatial problem solving deficit is secondary to impairment of mental flexibility, conceptualization and the ability to compare and contrast necessary in decision making. Finally, deficits on test of memory function are most often secondary to impairment of the encoding or initial processing of information, which depends on attention, and the retrieval of stored information. The storage of new information, or memory per se, is rarely impaired.

This pattern suggests that cognitive dysfunction in chronic Lyme, while expressed variably across individual patients, results from a common factor -- the breakdown of diffusely represented processes involving both integration and activation, and impacting primarily on attention and reasoning. The fluctuation of impairment over short periods of time suggest that a physiologic rather than a structural mechanism is responsible.

The neuro-psychological characteristics of 49 patients with Lyme disease were examined. The study set out to answer three
