Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome

Chronic Lyme Disease

Similar to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E., many patients with (presumed) Chronic Lyme Disease suffer with POTS / dysautonomia and all of its comorbid symptoms. First, we work hard to figure out if patients may have one of a few conditions that mimic Chronic Lyme Disease. If these patients are correctly identified, treatment turns to address the cause of a low immune system, rather than long-term antibiotics. We find this is essential for effective treatment of these patients.
