I have lyme disease and was one of those people who went through a lot of misdiagnosis. One of the things suspected was ALS.

The way I understood it, some of my symptoms were similar to ALS (fasciculations, muscle weakness, trouble swallowing, autonomic dysfunction as in many autonomic functions were not working like heart rate/blood pressure changes) But my symptoms were transient and not progressing fast. They told me if it were ALS, the symptoms would be constant, not transient, and the disease would be progressive, mine was waxing and waning. If any of you are like me with the symptoms, it may be lyme.

They also thought I had MS because of white matter lesions.

Basically I had symptoms of many different neurological diseases, but none of them really fit. That is when I would suspect lyme.
