In this Community Q&A call, we talked about:
A child is newly diagnosed with Lyme disease. Has a stiff neck, bulls-eye rash and headaches. She wants to know which course of action to take. How was he tested? Most non-Lyme-literate doctors will often only run a Western blot test, but there are other specialty labs that can help to confirm the clinical diagnosis. Also, there are often co-infections present at the same time, so be sure to have them tested for. Mold can contribute to autism, Lyme and PANS/PANDAS diagnoses.
