Tonight, Dr. Luz Jacqueline ..., 4 Oct 2007 [cached]
Tonight, Dr. Luz Jacqueline Ruiz, a neurologist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Nashoba Valley Medical Center, will host a public forum on Lyme disease prevention and awareness.
Ruiz called Lyme disease "the big imitator of many conditions."The disease is difficult to diagnose and often displays symptoms similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease), chronic-fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and Bell's palsy.
Clear signs of Lyme disease are a tick bite and a red rash that forms around the bite, which sometimes expands into the shape of a bull's-eye.
However, not all cases of Lyme disease have a visible bite or rash, making the illness challenging to diagnose, Ruiz said.
Castle asked Ruiz to speak in Westford tonight to promote Lyme disease awareness.
Ruiz said 80 percent of her patients with Lyme disease test negative on ELISA and Western blot tests.However, patients with a negative blood test often have spinal fluid that tests positive, Ruiz said.

Treatment: Antibiotics; some other individualized treatments depending on the conditions.
Luz Jacqueline Ruiz, a specialist in Lyme disease at Nashoba Valley Medical Center in Ayer, said her colleague receives 20 calls a week on tick bites.
Ticks have always been around, but never this many.
Ruiz said many patients don't even remember getting bitten by ticks.Diagnosis can be difficult because tests for antibodies aren't always reliable.The symptoms often mimic other illnesses, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, chronic-fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia and Bell's palsy.
While transmitting Lyme disease, ticks can also transmit to humans other infectious diseases like potentially fatal Rocky Mountain spotted fever - which Paglia became infected with recently after another tick bite - as well as babesia and ehrlichia, making diagnosis more complex, Ruiz said.

Dr. Luz Jacqueline Ruiz said while she does not see huge results from cholinesterase inhibitors such as Aricept, she believes they do slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
"Families can feel hopeless because they go home with the problem, and even with drugs, (the patient) gets worse," said Ruiz, a neurologist at Nashoba Valley Medical Center in Ayer."But I am very optimistic.There is a lot of work being done, and one of these days one (drug) will work."
Ruiz said she also encourages behavioral treatments for patients in addition to medication, and she recommends support groups for family members.
