When my husband was being diagnosed with PD they noticed evidence of significant prior Lyme disease in his blood test. I recently read in a blog that MJ Fox had Lyme disease. Is this true? Any other anecdotal info on this subject? I've been researching possible connections on-line.

Lyme is very common in many geographic areas -- sometimes I think everyone I know has had it, including me. I don't know of a link between Lyme and PD. Chronic Lyme disease (which not all doctors believe in) has some symptoms similar to PD, especially fatigue and confusion.
