Yes, I think I'm right all the time. So does everybody. But when I argue about something I try to make sure I actually am, especially on topics like this.

If you claim that "The bigger conspiracy is why the CDC denies that chronic infection from Lyme disease, which is estimated to occur with 20%-30% of those infected, exists" Then a link to the CDC acknowledging that chronic Lyme disease (or at least chronic Lyme disease symptoms) exist is a reasonable response. An activist community arguing for a disease mechanism isn't terribly convincing, especially with so many spectacular fails in recent memory. Yes, people are suffering, maybe people you know and love, maybe even you. That doesn't give you better insight into the causes than a doctor who has spent a career studying the disease and its mechanisms.

And yes, I know someone suffering from chronic Lyme. A good friend of mine went ten years with an undiagnosed (and, of course, untreated) case of Lyme. He eventually took a year-long course of intravenous antibiotics from the Mayo clinic—he had so many IVs they surgically implanted a shunt into his arm to avoid irritating the injection site. It didn't kill him but it made him very very sick. He likened it to chemo. Wasn't cheap either.

He's much better now, and I attributed that to the treatment until I read the CDC pages on PTLDS. It sounds like he might have put himself thru all that for nothing.
 

No, I don't think I am right all the time.  By way of example, let me correct my mistake in the above quote.  The bigger problem is why the CDC denies that chronic infection from Lyme disease COULD exist.    The jury is still out...there is no conclusion to draw as to why some patients continue to suffer.  

My own insight is based mostly on those doctors who continue to provide research (see prior links) and treat those patients.  

I'm surprised your friend received such aggressive treatment from Mayo; it's quite unusual and there would have had to be clear evidence the bacteria was found in spinal fluid and had crossed the blood brain barrier.

You attempt to counter my argument that the CDC has it wrong with more links, back to the CDC?  Further, the "evidence" against long term treatment with antibiotics quotes studies of 3 months or less? Long term would imply 12 months or more. Yes, IV antibiotics are risky (mainly due to port infections), but oral antibiotics have minimal risk usually limited to mild allergic reactions and c diff (again, if one is mindful of gut health, this risk can be minimized).   Funding levels, given the growing # of endemic areas, has been lacking...maybe $20-$30m last year, though that has been starting to grow.
  
Do you k ow anyone with the disease who suffers?  As for patients asking a doc to do something...I'm not talking about a nervous mother looking for a script because their kid has another ear infection, but patients who are bed ridden, lost jobs, marriages, even their life. Again, the doc and patient should be deciding on the risks, not a  gov bureaucracy. Your comment about finding another doc implies further ignorance on the matter, as that is the overriding issue with people with chronic lyme, or even as you prefer, PTLDS: they cant find effective treatment. If you're honestly interested in this topic, do a little actual research...google even.  Here, found this in about 2 minutes:

Lyme disease has had many millions of dollars spent on research. Sometimes we can't cure a disease, no matter how badly we want to. It isn't for lack of trying or because the callous CDC wants people to suffer or is part of some grand conspiracy, it's because the science isn't there.

Long-term use of antibiotics for acne is not something doctors are ok with—far from it.

A doctor can placate a patient's pleas to DO SOMETHING!!!  by prescribing more antibiotics—that happens far to often and has had some dangerous side effects. But it seldom cures the complaint, it just mollifies the patient while natural healing processes work on the problem.

The CDC doesn't say it doesn't exist, they say that the risks of taking antibiotics for longer than the 2–3 weeks brings a risk of greater problems. This is a page from Lazy's link that talks about Post Lyme Disease Syndrome

Better yet, he recommends growing them yourself.

This one and the association with Plum Island research has been floating around for the past couple of decades.  The bigger conspiracy is why the CDC denies that chronic infection from Lyme disease, which is estimated to occur with 20%-30% of those infected, exists.   As a result, insurance will only cover 2-3 weeks of antibiotics for treatment (although some docs may go another round, 2 months is usually the max).  Chronic suffers are forced to take their health care into their own hands, without insurance coverage.   Too many simply believe they are "healed" and continue to suffer for years and often decades.   

 
Starri disease is a close relative of Lyme and both of these diseases are absolutely life long debilitating, my wife has never been the same after being infected almost 10 years ago.
