    How do I request that Lyme disease be added as a subtopic?

    Is there a process in place (or forum location) for requesting subtopics be added?  Lyme disease needs to be on the health list....

    I have one positive result. Perhaps we can share symptoms. I get very tired and weary on most days. Exertion affects me a lot so I have to be careful. Do you have this problem?

      Absolutely....I definitely have to be careful.  When I was finally diagnosed this got much better with treatment.  But I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (more often referred to as ME in your part of the world, I think) for the first 3 yrs

      First, several months of antibiotics under care of an LLND, then herbals to maintain for several moths (was doing very well). Then I month abx this spring (I relapsed), now herbals/supplements/rest.  How about you?

      Chiropractors and kinesiologists plus nutrition and supplements. Still working on this.

      Me, too.  It's so complicated to find what works.  I used a chriopractor a few times, which helped after being in bed for so long.  It amazes me how potent and effective herbals can be and also how bad I feel when I miss supplements.

    Update: I posted my request under the link provided (thank you lisavollrath) and they got back to me right away and added the subcategory. 

    There are several good articles there, and perhaps more coming over from squidoo.  This was good timing, as HR 4701 was about to go before the house around that time, so all lyme info was good to share.  It passed senate two days ago and will be headed to senate, so (USA people, at least) contact your reps and ask for their support (after reading the bill to make sure you agree, of course!).....it is  HR 4701 - “Vector-Borne Disease Research Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014” as amended
