The paper describes my own case of
Lyme borreliosis, thus from the patient’s point of view, stressing the clues which might have led to an earlier diagnosis. Intense antibiotic treatment is of value, also when given first some 15 years after the probable time of the infection, as, at least in my case, it stopped the progress of all symptoms and removed some of them, particularly muscle pains and skin abnormalities. Long-standing, well-established neurological symptoms, however, remain unchanged, but their previous slow, steady progress has stopped. The diagnosis is in itself valuable, as it is a relief to know what is behind the complaints.
