Nhs Wrongly Diagnose Mum

A mum-of-one crippled by a deadly rare disease has been refused treatment by the NHS – because doctors don’t believe she is ill. Sonia Smith, 36, was a healthy, active mum until she was struck down with Lyme disease last year – which regularly leaves her bed-ridden, and causes seizures and even episodes of paralysis. But despite testing positive for the disease at a private clinic, Sonia, from Milton Keynes, claims NHS doctors have said they are baffled by her “mystery” illness.
