TEXARKANA, Texas (CN) – Twenty-eight people claim in a federal antitrust 
lawsuit that Lyme disease victims are being forced to pay hundreds of 
thousands of dollars for treatment because health insurers are denying 
coverage with bogus guidelines established by their paid consultants, 
who falsely say the disease can always be cured with a month of antibiotics.

Suffering from migraine headaches, an irregular heartbeat, hearing 
problems and nerve pain, lead plaintiff Lisa Torrey says in the lawsuit 
filed Friday in Texarkana, Texas federal court that she visited 36 
doctors, some of whom misdiagnosed her with multiple sclerosis and 
fibromyalgia and said her symptoms were all in her head, before she was 
properly diagnosed with Lyme disease.
