Doctors in Canada have been misinformed about the rate of infection and the reliability of diagnostic tests. Many people with Lyme suffer with symptoms but have been told they don’t have Lyme after a negative blood test. Check out the long list of highly variable symptoms here.
If you or someone you care about suspects they might have Lyme, it is critically important to find a well-informed doctor. Contact the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation (CanLyme) for support finding a Lyme-literate doctor in your region.
