Chronic Lyme Quality of Life ~ Survey results from LymeDisease.Org and Carnegie Mellon University

LYMEPOLICYWONK: Survey Results Published! Chronic Lyme Patients Suffer Poor Quality of Life and High Rates of Disability and Unemployment
"LDo's most recent survey of over 3,000 patients with chronic Lyme disease was published today by PeerJ. Although the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently increased the number of Lyme disease cases in the US from 30,000 to 300,000,
little is known about how chronic Lyme disease affects patients. We decided it was time to ask them. This post will provide an overview of the findings and future blogs will focus on other findings regarding coinfection rates, rashes, disability, symptoms and other topics. The study was a joint effort of LymeDisease.Org and Prof. Jennifer Mankoff at Carnegie Mellon University." - See more at:
