The Infectious Diseases Society of America, the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the American Academy of Neurology all agree that there is no such condition as chronic Lyme disease.
While some medical professionals say chronic Lyme disease does not exist, there is evidence to support the fact some symptoms do linger past initial treatment of Lyme disease. This is known as Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome.
The exact cause of this is not yet known, but most medical experts believe that the lingering symptoms are the result of residual damage to tissues and the immune system that occurred during the infection. In a small percentage of cases symptoms can last for more than six months.
