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....
You can post a request in the forums, here: http://hubpages.com/forum/category/6634
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
Well me too. CFS. Lyme Disease has just come into the picture. What treatment do you use?
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

Lyme disease diagnosis & treatment are highly controversial and a very big deal.....for patients and in general. I've seen a number of Lyme disease hubs here when I've searched for it, but haven't seen a hub topic area. I posted a hub just now and regretted not asking this sooner,...

I was doing some internet research following a suggestion by my husband's doctor that he should have a blood test for Lyme Disease. I came across a research paper that had carried out blood tests on children diagnosed with autism, and had found that 25% had antibodies to Lyme Disease. ...
