Military Lyme Support group

Group Description

Military Lyme Support® was Founded in 2002 by a USAF Spouse who found it impossible to get adequate treatment for Lyme and Co-infections at her local Military Treatment Facility. This site is a source for information and emotional support for ALL Members of the Armed Forces: Veterans, Active Duty, Reserve, Family and Caregivers. 

To date, Lyme and other vector-borne diseases are often unrecognized, misdiagnosed, and untreated. Lyme is known as the "Great Imitator" and Doctors often prefer more familiar diagnoses like GWS, FM, CFS, XMRV, Lupus, Sjogrens, MS, RA, ALS, Autism, ADHD, or Mental Illness, just to name a few. This "cook-book" diagnostic approach leaves our Members with untreated, chronic diseases that can cause complete disability.

Military Lyme Support empowers our Members to get the cutting-edge treatment they need to overcome their illnesses via the ILADS Treatment Guidelines. Doctor referrals, VA, MTF and Tricare advice is also provided.

Please Note: You can test negative multiple times, and still be infected, as the currently available tests are grossly unreliable and inaccurate. If you have a rash, you are CDC positive for Lyme Disease...even if you test negative!
