INTERPRETING THE RESULTS:
We see a high frequency of section 1 symptoms in our patients, including fatigue, joint & muscle pain that often migrates, sleep disorders, as well as memory & concentration issues, and a high frequency of section 3 symptoms, especially neuropathic pain that comes and goes and migrates (tingling, numbness, burning, etc.) These form a cluster of presenting symptoms that are characteristic of those having a high probability of Lyme-MSIDS.
In a recent study of 100 consecutive patients, it was found that more than 25% reported these common symptoms most or all of the time in the month preceeding their office visit. Many reported these symptoms affected their quality of life: 71% reposrted their physical health was not good, and 47% reported thier mental health was not good on at least 15 days in the previous month.
