I considered Lyme as a source for my neurological/psychiatric issues. I have spent a lot of time outdoors and have been bitten by ticks. I never noticed a bullseye rash or anything like that, but no one
can argue that Lyme causes neuro-psychiatric symptoms. Lyme is difficult to diagnose reliably, so it is reasonable that anyone suffering chronic neuro-psych symptoms who was ever bitten by a tick,
would want to rule out Lyme. And, that is not as easy as it might be. On the other hand, there are a lot of other reasons to have neuro-psych symptoms which makes Lyme disease less likely.
I noticed that hamburgers and other meats don't have the same flavor as used to be. Did I lose my taste buds as I aged? Is it the antibiotics they are using on pork and beef? Or, did some pathogen
I got from a tick bite remove my sense of taste? LOL. Llife is sure complicated.
