Can you tell me lyme being the cause of spinal stenosis?

Question:
I was wondering if anyone know's about lyme being the cause of spinal stenosis? i know it causes arthritis, which i have, but now this?? it's just too much along with everything else....i can barely move most of the time....


Answer:
In 1988 I was dischared from the USN for the concurrent conditions of "stenosis of the spine (10% disability) and Lyme Diseasze (0% disability). I was just ambulatory at the time.

The rheumatologist who treated me assured me that there was no connection between the two, and in fact, Bethesda did not recognize any Lyme involvement in the back.

My personal feeling is that the conditions were related, based on my prior health and fitness level. Oh, well...
