PLEASE have your mom (and you) go to a Lyme Disease specialist! Multiple Sclerosis is VERY often a false diagnosis for what is actually Lyme Disease. Your mom should get thoroughly checked out, because if it is Lyme then they can actually treat her infections and she could get healthier. The longer she waits though the worse it is for her body. I HIGHLY recommend you doing this. I am in "recovery" treatment for Lyme, come from a family of all doctors (2 others of whom also have Lyme) and one of my parents has worked with one of the top Lyme specialists in the nation where they often saw this MS/Lyme situation. The other thing is that if neglected Lyme can turn into MS. It would be good to see if there is a chance that your mom can get better by being diagnosed correctly.
