Review: could Lyme disease cause Dysphagia?
Summary: Dysphagia could be caused by Lyme disease, especially for people who are female, 50-59 old, and take Synthroid.
We study 800 people who have Lyme disease from FDA and social media. Among them, 6 have Dysphagia (Swallowing difficulty). Find out below who they are, other conditions they have and drugs they take.
How are my drugs for patients like me? On eHealthMe, you can research 300 million drug outcomes from FDA and social media. All studies are personalized to gender and age. Start now, it's anonymous, simple & free >>>
Lyme disease (latest reports from 4,254 patients) is typically treated by Doxycycline Hyclate, Doxycycline, Amoxicillin, Ceftin, Azithromycin, Plaquenil.
Dysphagia (condition in which swallowing is difficult or painful) (latest reports from 248,489 patients) has been reported by people with high blood pressure, osteoporosis, pain, multiple sclerosis, depression.
On Apr, 11, 2014: 799 people who have lyme disease are studied. Among them, 6 (0.75%) have Dysphagia. They amount to 0.00% of all the 248,148 people who have Dysphagia on eHealthMe.

From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have so many side effects that chronic fatigue seems simplistic. Almost every cell in my body has been damaged. I have seen over 20 doctors since my cascade of symptoms started (13years ago). They all play dumb, tell me my problem is not in their specialty, or offer me antidepressants. Yet when I look up actual research, I see that most of the pieces of the physiology of my syndrome have been known for years (some for decades).
I also note that on this web site, there is no way to report a high number of side effects or simplify them as mitochondrial damage.
I believe it is the intent of this web site, the AMA, drug companies, and most doctors to deliberately avoid "knowing" about the holocaust of poisoning that is occurring in the name of heath care.
The logarithmical explosion of cancer, obesity, depression, allergies, auto-immune diseases, "rare genetic diseases," and diabetes (to name just a few) matches exactly the explosion of pharmaceutical consumption.
It would be appropriate to apply the scientific method instead of the profit motive to further human health.
