Fatigue, Pain Often Accompany Chronic Lyme Disease

Reuters Health

By Karla Gale

Monday, October 31, 2005

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Because Lyme disease is difficult to diagnose in the absence of the characteristic "bull's eye rash," the illness can become entrenched and difficult to treat.

In such cases, symptoms such as memory loss, irritability and fatigue, may predominate, according to a study presented at the sixth annual Lyme Conference in Philadelphia.

"No one was studying chronic Lyme disease, yet a growing number of patients were suffering with chronic persistent symptoms even after antibiotic treatment," lead investigator Dr. Brian Fallon, from Columbia University in New York, told Reuters Health.

For their study, sponsored by the National Institute of Neurology and Stroke, Fallon's group recruited 37 patients who met strict conditions for having chronic Lyme disease. The team conducted brain-imaging studies and assessed the participants' response to re-treatment.

"Based on objective tests of physical impairment, we found that the patients had levels of functional disability comparable to what you would see with congestive heart failure, as well as pain comparable to what you might expect in patients coming out of surgery, and fatigue comparable to patients with multiple sclerosis," Fallon said.

Moreover, brain-imaging studies showed "that there are widespread deficits in blood flow and metabolism in patients compared to age- and education-matched controls."

"From a strictly objective stance these patients are quite impaired," Fallon maintained. "Chronic Lyme disease clearly exists and represents a major public health problem."

The researcher said that once chronic Lyme disease patients have been treated with a 3-week course of antibiotics, they are often told that any remaining symptoms are of a psychiatric nature.

"So patients are not only are experiencing a disease causing significant disability and pain, they are also experiencing invalidation of their illness by being told they are making it up, that 'it's all in their head'," he said.

One problem is that many of the initial tests for the disease are inadequate, so negative results should be followed by more sophisticated tests. On average, it takes 1.2 years for the correct diagnosis of chronic Lyme disease to be made.

"The reason is that certain patients do not present with classic signs of Lyme disease, such as rash or joint swelling. They might instead present with a chronic fatigue syndrome-like picture or gradual increasing verbal fluency problems or memory problems, or personality change with irritability."

Fallon noted that retreatment with antibiotics can help, but "unfortunately for many patients it's not the final answer, because some will get better and then relapse again months later."

"Perhaps 30 percent of patients will need to be given additional course of antibiotics," he added. However, "the optimal duration and extent of treatment has not yet been fully delineated."

No advice from CDC on Tamiflu hoarding



Patients, schools, doctors looking for guidance

Friday, October 28, 2005; Posted: 10:50 a.m. EDT (14:50 GMT)
 
CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- Worried that bird flu in Asia could morph into a human flu pandemic, healthy patients, schools and even some doctors are asking if they should stock up on Tamiflu -- the one medicine experts believe might help fight the virus.

Although some doctors' groups say no, the agency in charge of the nation's public health has no answer. That has frustrated local health officials who want to know how to advise people.

"Those are questions that are under discussion," Christina Pearson, spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, said this week. "Right now we're focused on the seasonal flu."

HHS includes the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, whose job includes dispensing public health recommendations.

"A lot of people have asked the CDC to provide some guidance about this, with patients asking doctors for prescriptions," said Dr. Craig Conover, medical director for the Illinois Department of Public Health.

Personal hoarding isn't fair, he said, "but on the other hand, I have heard people say that the more this gets used, the more manufacturing ability they'll develop. We've chosen to wait for CDC guidance on this."

Tamiflu is a prescription pill designed to treat regular flu. But it also seems to offer some protection to people against the type of flu that has devastated Asian poultry flocks and is spreading to birds in Europe. Bird flu has killed more than 60 people over the past two years.

On Thursday, Tamiflu's Swiss maker, Roche Holding AG, said it was temporarily suspending shipment to private U.S. suppliers because of increased global demand.

"We've seen recently some very large purchases at the wholesale level, companies or large entities who are possibly hoarding Tamiflu right now," said Darien Wilson, spokeswoman at Roche's U.S. offices in Nutley, N.J.

Prescriptions for the drug last week were nearly quadruple what they were a year before, according to Verispan, a Pennsylvania-based company that monitors pharmacy sales.

And this winter's flu season hasn't even started yet.

Maura Robbins of Chicago said she and her husband have discussed whether to seek prescriptions for their two young children as a precaution against a pandemic. They won't for now, because they "didn't want to buy into the hysteria or overreact," she said.

Dr. Bennett Kaye, a pediatrician affiliated with Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital, said he tells patients that stocking up on Tamiflu "is definitely a bad, bad idea."

The virus circulating among Asian birds is not spreading between people and is not even very easy for people to catch from birds.

"Parents should not be worried about their kids catching bird flu this year unless they're planning on visiting a chicken farm in Vietnam," Kaye said.

Published reports suggest that some doctors are keeping supplies of Tamiflu to give to family and friends in case the bird flu mutates into a bigger threat, but no doctors reached for this story acknowledged that.

The American Medical Association is against personal stockpiling and says the misuse of Tamiflu could lead to drug-resistant flu strains.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is preparing a statement urging pediatricians "not to do personal or organizational stockpiles," said Dr. John Bradley, a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics' infectious disease committee. "The last sentence of the statement is that no pediatrician on this committee has a personal stockpile or is prescribing the drug" for healthy people.

Dr. Deborah Yokoe, an infectious disease specialist at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital, said, "Doctors are human, too. They have the same sorts of anxieties themselves. I'm sure some are keeping supplies, too."

Last week, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health issued a notice advising against personal stockpiling, prompted by patients' questions, and Yokoe said such messages will discourage some doctors from writing advance prescriptions for a potential flu pandemic.

Tamiflu isn't the only hot commodity being sought because of pandemic worries.

Kimberly-Clark Health Care says it has "ramped up to full capacity" face mask production to keep up with bird flu-linked demand from governments, hospitals and individuals. Surgical N-95 masks protect against airborne disease transmission.

Company spokesman David Parks declined to specify numbers but said some orders have been 50 times higher than usual.

3M spokeswoman Jacqueline Berry also reported a rise in face-mask orders but said reasons for demand include hurricane-related mold problems.

Two people showing symptoms of the bird flu virus

HANOI, Vietnam (Reuters) -- Two people showing symptoms of the bird flu virus have died in the past week in Vietnam, where the disease has already killed more than 40 people, a hospital official said on Saturday.

"It's very, very clear that all the critical symptoms pointed to bird flu," Dr Nguyen Ngoc Tai, the director of the Vietnam-Cuba Hospital in Dong Hoi, central Vietnam, told Reuters.

The Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper quoted a report from the hospital in Quang Binh province as saying the victims, a 14-year-old girl and a 26-year-old man, had eaten duck and a chicken's egg around a week before they got sick.

The girl was admitted to hospital on Oct. 21 and died on Oct. 23 and the man died on Oct. 26 within an hour of arriving at the hospital. Their bodies had been sent home to be buried, Tai said.

He said the victims were not related and from different towns in the province, which is around 500 km (310 miles) south of the capital Hanoi.

Tuoi Tre newspaper quoted doctors at the hospital as saying they both had severe respiratory problems, fever and lung infection -- symptoms similar to bird flu.

Tai said a third person with symptoms of the disease had been sent to a better-equipped hospital in Hue City, central Vietnam, for treatment.

"There is another case of a 27-year-old man who is suspected to have been infected with bird flu but in a milder form," Tai said.

He said his hospital was ill equipped to treat bird flu patients and called for immediate supplies of the antiviral drug Tamiflu and flu vaccines to cope with the situation if more bird flu patients emerged.

Most human bird flu infections are due to handling birds sick with the virus or contact with their droppings. Cooked meat is not a known source of infection.

The latest H5N1 outbreak first surfaced in Asia in late 2003. Since then, 62 people have died in Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia and the virus has spread to Europe's eastern border.

donate a jeep for Dr. David and the Hill Tribe patients

allow us to ask you if you can maybe donate a jeep for Dr. David in the Hill Tribe patients, even a used one for remote areas in the hill tribes area. As you maybe know in the moment are many cases with dengue fever her in the northern thailand. I go every week on my own cost in the hill tribes and provide free medical service, but in the moment its are growing a lot and I need some help. We want to set up a mobile clinic by a jeep. The government doesn't provide any help. We offer you to make already by yourself the advertisment at the outfront of the car as a mobile cinic, like ...your company... helps the hill tribes in the northern thailand or similar. I have already all the medical equipment. I just looking for the Jeep Sponsor. I will appreciate any positive response from your site.
Thanks

Best Regards
Dr. Eddy

Quick cleansing history and first day on Oxy

Quick cleansing history and first day on Oxy

Quick cleansing history and first day on Oxy

So after 2 yrs of cleansing i've decided to try the wonderful and so talked about oxy-powder. after awaiting for 12 days it's arrival from the us (i'm in canada) i took my first dose last nite...but first a little bit of history.

i started cleansing 2 yrs ago; bowel, parasite and liver. all the cleanses except for the intestinal ones have been incredibly successfull. the colon clease i've had trouble with....altho i've stared cleansing when i've been regular. i tried the p/b shakes and altho i've gotten pretty good results in the beginning, towards the end, last 6 months, they've done nothing but back me up (to the point where the psyllium did not come out of me at all) and caused me to gain about 10 lb. to make matters worse this allergy season has been the worst....definately time for a new cleanse.

so, here i am, day one of op. i just had a huge bm. last nite i took 3 caps and was very scared for some reason. so much fear and a very unrestful sleep, i've awaken many times feeling like i needed to go but was too tired for my legs to take to the potty.

this morning i've been incredibly emotional. i know the two are related. i'm also very relieved that i don't have to run to the toiled every few seconds like i've read about. i am also wondering if somehow i can do this cleanse during the day rather then nite so i can actually sleep. anyone know?

as i write all this i feel odd to be posting a poo blog. but hey why not! i should be used to it by now?

Day 3 of Oxy-Powder

Day 3 of Oxy-Powder

Oxy-Powder, bowel cleanse

well, day 3 is here and i don't feel all to impressed with this cleanse at the moment. i'm sure i'm just getting anxious and wanting to see results like everyone else...and all i'm seeing is brown water and liquified dinners, lunches and breakfasts that are for some reason coming out btw. 2am and 5 am...rather then the day.

so i can forget about restful sleep till at least my dose stabilizes.

last nite i took 8 caps plus 2 caps paragone. this morning another 2 caps of paragone. last night i had some lower right hand side intestinal pain. a hot water bottle really helped.

still no appetite, and now a sore throat and my allergies are in full swing; runny nose, sneezing, ithcy eyes...the whole works back witha a vengence!

(we have cherry tree blossoms, magnolias and every flowering tree starting to bloom here in vancouver so maybe my symptoms are not related to the cleanse)

i'm not exactly in the cheeriest moods this morning either...maybe this is a sign that the cleanse is working.
