    Boston Globe Story

    Today's globe reports a woman 5 years ago began experiencing numbness and tingling, a stiff neck, and periodic tremors. She received three opinions from different neurologists who each agreed she had MS. She was put on steroids and her condition got worse. She went to a 4th neurologist who said in addition to MS she had Lyme disease and by this time the steroids had suppressed her immune system, letting the Lyme bacteria "have a party in her body." Last year her doctor told her she did not have MS.

    Anyone have any guesses as to the certainty of MS in all these patients in these studies?
