My acupuncturist told me that Lyme can be transmitted through saliva or semen.  Does anyone know this is true?  Has anyone heard of this happening to themselves or someone else?  Thanks.

    There is overwhelming evidence that this could be the case. There is a forum which can be found by googling unknownstd which has thousands of people commenting on an std which tests negative for all known stds but have the same symptoms which are similar, if not identical to Lyme. The consensus is that Lyme is the most probable cause.

    Of course, the medically approved answer would (as of now) be 'no'.

    As far as I am aware there is nothing anywhere that would suggest even slightly that lyme can be transmitted from person to person.
