Lyme disease: Man spent £25,000 prior to getting diagnosis

A 36-year-old man spent £25,000 on tests and failed treatments prior to eventually being diagnosed with Lyme disease.

Steven Williams, of Maesteg, Bridgend, was healthy and active when he was hit by severe apprehension and left bed-ridden and shaking for 18 hours a day.

Notwithstanding in spite of seeking assistance from his GP and private healthcare, he grappled to get answers.

There is guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for GPs on the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease in the UK, with antibiotics usually helping most people to recover.
