Patient ‐reported outcome after treatment for definite Lyme neuroborreliosis

ConclusionsResults on validated PROM questionnaires measuring fatigue, anxiety, depression, self ‐reported somatic symptom burden, and physical health‐related quality did not differ between persons treated for definite NB 1–10 years earlier and reference scores. NB‐treated persons tended to report a slightly poorer mental health‐related quality of life than found in normative data, b ut when adjusting for confounders the causative connection is questionable. Overall, the long‐term prognosis of definite NB seems to be good.

It’s not because what we do isn’t important, it’s because our view of people and the way we work with people differs from most health professions. Occupational therapists don’t treat disease per se, we work with peo...

Conclusions: "Home staying syndrome" is an undefined syndrome of unusual symptoms of abnormal sleep (altering sleep time and duration) and frequent urination> 3 times/hour. This syndrome is associated with staying at home for a long period of time and is easily resolved by doing any activity such as sports or visiting friends. While this syndrome is rare, it may be more prevalent now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which forces people to stay home for infection prevention. PMID: 32975916 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
