The Rise of Chronic Lyme—and What to Do About It

Amiram Katz, M.D. was the director of the epilepsy center at Norwalk Hospital in Connecticut in the 1990’s when he started seeing patients whose seizures were not epileptic, but something different—involuntary movements which turned out to be autoimmune complications of Lyme disease. “When the Lyme community hears about a doctor willing to listen to them, that information spreads like wildfire,” says Katz. He began seeing more and more Lyme patients and opened a private practice in 2002.

Here, Katz shares his stance on chronic Lyme, and illuminates a way to navigate through it that has proved immensely helpful for many. (For multiple other perspectives on Lyme disease, see here.)
