Internal medicine doctor Troy Taylor says he’s been told by doctors that his symptoms are the result of Lyme Disease and he’s worried about getting a diagnosis.
He tells Business Insider he’s “very disappointed” with the response to his article on the website.
“I’ve heard from doctors that they feel that it’s not Lyme Disease, it’s just a ‘I’m confused by the symptoms’ issue, and that there are more Lyme disease symptoms than Lyme Disease symptoms,” he says.
“So, if you’re having any Lyme symptoms that are just not Lyme related, I’d like you to look into that.”
Taylor has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2018.
“My symptoms have not changed,” he said.
“It’s just not been a constant thing, but I do think that’s an indication of something else.
The doctor says he has not received any positive responses from the medical community to his claim that Lyme Disease is a ‘myth’. “
That being said, I do feel quite confident that I’m not Lyme.”

“I’m not sure what the answer is,” he adds.
“But if I’m telling the truth, it may well be that this is just an imagination of my imagination.”
‘I can’t believe it’s coming back’ The Mayo Clinic has said it will investigate whether the doctor’s article was accurate.
In a statement, the hospital said it was aware of the article and was looking into the claims.
“The Mayo Clinic is aware of this article, and is reviewing it,” it said.
In February, it said it “recognises the risk of overdiagnosis of Lyme-like illness”.
It is unclear if Taylor will receive the diagnosis or the attention he’s seeking.”
However, we do not accept his diagnosis as accurate and have asked him to provide evidence that the symptoms he claims are the consequence of Lyme illness are real.”
