A Lyme Sufferer
March 23, 2017

I was a student at Harvard Business School while experiencing stage 3 neurological Lyme disease in 2013 (after going undiagnosed many years prior).

Despite my frequent visits to student health, Mass General, Brigham Women’s, and Mt. Auburn, I was not able to get the correct diagnosis.

I hope the Harvard community will continue to update their knowledge on this terrible illness, and also approach it with a more open mind. The IDSA guidelines are outdated and simply wrong. The lack of knowledge among practitioners staggering.

Thank you very much for your research and post.
