Are you aware about the terrifying, tick-transmitted epidemic that's growing at a rate faster than AIDS?Did you know that prominent victims include Parker Posey, Richard Gere, President George W. Bush, Alice Walker and Christie Brinkley?
In fact, this is a health problem that often befuddles physicians.
Sadly, "ill-informed doctors are often flummoxed when patients complain of fatigue, headaches, fever or chills, muscle or joint pain, mental confusion, swollen lymph nodes and neurological symptoms. It's an appalling display of indifference." So I pointed out in my recent op ed piece on AOL News.
Have you guessed yet? I'm talking about Lyme disease.
