My girlfriend Cally has been suffering from chronic lyme disease for 4 years and over the years she has seen numerous doctors who have been no help in finding out what was wrong with her, after looking at other options she decided to attend a private clinic at Breakspear in Hertfordshire and they sent off her blood test to Igenex in California to see if she has lyme disease and unfortunately the tests came back positive. Cally cannot get the medical assistance she needs on the NHS due to a lack of knowledge of the disease in the UK and the controversy surrounding Chronic Lyme Disease. The Elisa Screening test that is done is unreliable and misses 35% of culture proven Lyme disease (only 65% sensitivity) which is why it is so hard to get a diagnosis and treatment on the NHS for it if you have had it for a long time. Lyme disease is transmitted through a tick bite and if its left untreated months or years later it can spread to the brain and nervous system, muscles and joints, heart and circulation, digestion, reproductive system, and skin. Chronic Lyme Disease is treated with intensive long term iv and oral antibiotic treatment, numerous supplements and therapies to get rid of the bacteria that has attacked the body for years. I have seen first hand what this horrible illness does to Cally and having no help from the NHS she has no choice but to try and raise funds and see a lyme literate doctor for treatment abroad as they are far more advanced at treating the disease. Any help no matter how little or big the donation anything would be greatly appreciated. Now for anymore further information covered in this can be found at this link Information about Lyme Disease. So on behalf of myself, Cally's mother and family and Cally herself thank you for reading this and donating and please know you will be making a great difference.
