Kansas couple starts group for those with Lyme disease
May 12, 2017
EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — For almost five years, Nikki DiSalvo only knew she was sick.
Suffering from seemingly unrelated symptoms ranging from fatigue, visual disturbances and digestive issues to cardiovascular and neurological issues, DiSalvo received an equally broad range of diagnoses. Lupus, multiple sclerosis and a panic disorder — each was a false description before DiSalvo learned the true name of her illness in November 2015.
The Emporia Gazette (http://bit.ly/2qSBnrL ) reports that Lyme disease, caused by bacteria carried by ticks, was to blame for each of DiSalvo's symptoms.
