Lyme Disease has been a known tickborne infectious disease since the early 80s. Treatment for Lyme Disease is surprisingly straightforward, but you would never guess that from the controversy surrouding the infection.

Part of the problem stems from "Chronic Lyme Disease," which is now more appropriately knwon as Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome, to indicate that the infection is no longer present in these patients. There is some explanation for their symtoms other than persisttent bacteremia.

Todayw e talk about all this, and dig into a little of the history and the controversy surroudning Lyme Disease.
