When you begin to research Lyme disease, you quickly realise that there is a lot of information out there. And it’s not always consistent. That’s why we’ve collated a few of our favourite resources for you!

It is by no means an exhaustive list, but it’s a good place to start.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for Lyme patients to be refused medical care, told “it’s all in your head”, “we don’t have Lyme here” or even be subjected to ridicule. Find out about your health care rights (includes state-by-state list of complaint organisations).
