Neuropsychiatric symptoms and lyme disease
Reported cases of Lyme Disease in the U.S. have risen 2000% over the last thirty years, and the CDC estimates that there could now be as many as 300,000 cases annually. Even as the incidence of Lyme increases, the disease is often overlooked in evaluating and treating neuropsychiatric symptoms – despite awareness in the medical community that Lyme and other tick-borne infections can present with these symptoms.
In this interview for the website PatientTalk.com, Dr. Chandra discusses how Lyme Disease can contribute to neuropsychiatric symptoms, and describes some of her integrative approaches to supporting patients with this condition.
The interview is part of a PatientTalk series on Lyme Disease, which features more than five hours of videos offering perspectives from patients, caregivers, and medical professionals on living with and treating Lyme Disease.
