OUR MISSION: Dedicated to the education and prevention of Lyme Disease and other tick/vector borne diseases and to assist in the rights of Lyme patients for better treatment to improve their quality of life.
The YORK LYME DISEASE SUPPORT GROUP, serving York & surrounding counties, is made up of volunteers many with first hand experience of Lyme and/or other tick borne diseases (such as Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Bartonella, Anaplasmosis, etc.)
- Did you know that Lyme disease test results are only 40% accurate?
- You may test negative even though you actually have the disease.
- Lyme Disease symptoms are numerous and it is often misdiagnosed as one of the following illnesses:
Multiple Sclerosis Arthritis Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ALS ADHD
Fibromyalgia Lupus Alzheimer's disease Seizure and other neurological conditions.
