Neurologic Lyme Disease:
Defining and Treating an Elusive Target

Brian A. Fallon, MD, MPH, Med, Harry Goldhagen, MS

A few comments on the article and link to full article


In more than two thirds of their Lyme positive adults with acute disease included:

  • fatigue
  • headache
  • sleep problems
  • stiff neck
  • Muscle aches

Patients with chronic disease had different major symptoms:

  • concentration trouble
  • fatigue
  • joint aches
  • muscle aches
  • mood disturbance
  • memory loss
  • sleep problems
  • word-finding difficulties
  • knee pain
  • confusion
  • neck stiffness

Chronic Lyme Symptoms in Children

  • headache
  • fatigue

Key Point for Schaller:

The children with chronic disease had fewer symptoms than adults, but they had more inflammatory CSF changes.


The inflammatory changes CAN BE TESTED BY 20 LABS and are often not tested from my interviews with many lab supervisors in many states. Inflammation changes cause many subtle psychological, personality and learning problems. These include irritability, anxiety, concentration trouble, new learning trouble, aggression, new cursing, ADD/ADHD-like symptoms, OCD thoughts and isolation. But all psychological and neurology symptoms are possible.
