    (waits to read the full details - and ponders the confident assumption that ONLY latent syphillis and tuberculosis need antibiotic treatment, despite the fact that some cell-wall-deficient bacteria can lurk undetected in human blood for decades, and there is no definitive & complete catalogue of all bacteria on our planet)

    "Psychological trauma may be part of these subjective symptoms."

    Bets?

    ETA: I find this abstract troubling. Planting the psych seed is disturbing in its own right, but reducing PTLDS to an assumptive close with only subjective symptoms borders on absurd. I have been treated for Lyme, and I have both subjective and objective symptoms - as do many with so-called PTLDS.

    I also have evidence of continued infection, although not conclusive.

    This seeming mischaracterization of symptoms is rife in historic Lyme medical circles, although that is changing.

    Also may be part of these subjective symptoms: Bigfoot, solar flares, swing dancing, butterflies, precession of the equinox, intestinal gas, fox puppies.

    If we're going with "may be", might as well cover everything that is possible.

    Except, of course, for an actual pathophysiology. That it may not be. Also don't fund research in case you may find something, it would be quite embarrassing after decades of ideological sabotage and billions wasted on useless alternative medicine.
