According to an article that appeared recently in Huffington Post, Tracy Murphy, AuD, an audiologist based in Illinois, USA, member of the American Academy of Audiology Board of Directors stated during an interview that “Many Lyme patients lose their hearing from the disease.”
Murphy affirmed there is connection between the hearing loss and Lyme, that the latter may be the culprit. She also emphasized on the importance of drawing more non-hearing-related symptoms from a patient before the making a diagnosis.
I wish that at least one of the specialists I have seen, would have had the same mindset as Murphy. It would have saved me time and money.
I wonder how long it will take to hear more specialists acknowledging the connections between Lyme and their specialties?
