The Faces of Lyme: Max
“Be open-minded with treatment”
Around 10 years old, Max noticed he didn’t feel well at a baseball tournament. Several tests later he did not have a diagnosis so he kept playing. It all came to a head when the stress (stress can cause lyme to flare up) of playing in another tournament resulted in major stomach issues. Since then Max has always struggled to gain weight from gastrointestinal issues associated with Lyme. He talks about what helps his stomach issues and identifies the one thing that helps him feel better every day.
