FMS can be a debilitating condition, involving many systems within the body. It stands apart from arthritis and autoimmune reactivity in that the muscles are not inflamed on biopsy. Lyme disease was once thought of as an obscure disease that only affected people living in the northeast.
Increasingly, however, Lyme disease is showing itself to be more prevalent than ever, and more widespread throughout the country, and indeed the world. The number of Lyme disease cases is difficult to estimate because of both unreported and undiagnosed cases. The number of reported cases exceeds 20, per […].

Akinoshicage Methyl B12 must injected into the muscle as it will not be absorbed if swallowed or used sublingually. Consider Doxycycline first due to concern for Ehrlichia. Avoid sweets, starches, fruits and juices to starve the germs.
