Under Our Skin

Under Our Skin
1:27:54 | 2008

Categories: Documentary, Festivals, Award Winning, Health and Food

A dramatic tale of microbes, medicine and money. Under Our Skin investigates the untold story of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic larger than AIDS. Each year thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, told that their symptoms are "all in their head." Following the stories of patients and physicians as they battle for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of our health care system and its ability to cope with a silent terror under our skin.

I wander if a lot of people that are diagnosed with Fibromialgia actually have Lyme disease. Also, could Lyme disease have a link to Alzheimer's. Now Im seeing these questions in the film. COULD THERE BE A CONNECTION ??? YOU HAVE TO WANDER. My father has Alzheimer's and diabetes. He is one of 5 out of 8 siblings that have Alzheimer's. And you know, they were brought up in the country where ticks were galore !!! And deer.

This is a movie all should see. You can not get treatment when you are misdiagnosed!
