Doctors discover Irish student who was admitted to hospital for depression actually had a deadly brain infection
A Dublin student who was admitted to a psychiatric hospital after doctors thought she was having a mental breakdown has told how tests revealed she actually had a deadly brain infection.
When 22-year-old Hannah Farrell’s behaviour changed dramatically – making her forgetful and causing her to sleep more often – she thought she was burnt out after sitting stressful exams, then working around the clock in a deli.
Here, LLMD Dr. Cameron gives a rebuttal to Wormer’s statement that no such thing as Lyme encephalitis exists: http://danielcameronmd.com/patients-should-be-warned-of-lyme-disease-complications-including-lyme-encephalopathy/
Key quote: Lyme encephalopathy has repeatedly been described in the literature.
Then he goes on to list many cases. Wormser lives in a different reality.

The dogma that Lyme patients should never receive steroids or immunosuppressive agents is not always true…With antibiotic therapy there may be a dramatic response: they get much worse. This is even more the case with therapy directed at Babesia and Bartonella….This is not a Herxheimer reaction. This is the most crucial point of this post. Continued therapy will not lead to improvement. A Herxheimer reaction is caused by a mini-cytokine-storm. It is normal, although exaggerated response to killing germs. This other reaction is caused by exacerbation of an autoimmune response: the production of self-directed antibodies. This is very troublesome and difficult to manage….The disease is very complex and multifaceted. Something to keep in mind when patients do not respond to standard therapy as expected.
