I have many times given this important information (from skilled German physicians):
http://www.praxis-berghoff.de/dokumente ... glisch.pdf
But I have noticed that some people from US, don't understand this (thank you, again Rita):There is a high therapeutic failure rate for the antibiotic treatment of
lyme borreliosios in its late phase (52, 54-56, 65, 75-77)

As you can see, most people diagnosed with neuroborreliosis actually instead have early Lyme disease.More than 95% can be classified as early LNB (stage II), defined as signs and symptoms lasting for <6 months. Less than 5% have late LNB (stage III) with duration between 6 months and several years . The natural course of early LNB is often self-limiting , whereas late LNB has a chronic course that probably reflects persistent survival of bacteria in nervous tissue.
And in the text above, you can find information about what I actually mean when I talk about a chronic infection.
But, I think that some people from US think that this word "chronic" stands for "unexplained remaining symptoms after early treatment, as in Klempner studies, but as you can see it don't.
I get really "funny" reactions (from some members), and I have tried to find an explanation, but it is almost impossible to understand why some members don't like that some people with late Lyme disease before treatment actually are not cured with "standard treatment", and maybe need more abx.
