Storyline

A gripping tale of microbes, medicine and money, "Under Our Skin" exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most controversial and fastest growing epidemics of our time. Each year, thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, often told that their symptoms are "all in their head." Following the stories of patients and physicians fighting for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of the health care system and a medical establishment all too willing to put profits ahead of patients.

Outstanding Lyme disease & co-infection documentary!
20 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

Open Eye films did an outstanding job on this almost 2 hr. documentary!

It presents the facts as they are for us chronic Lyme patients who are not diagnosed promptly; under treated in antibiotics, and thrown into the Lyme war controversy! We didn't ask to be in controversial disease where our insurance companies refuse to pay their fair share for our Lyme appointments and treatments!

I've had chronic Lyme 40 yrs. this Xmas; 34.5 yrs. misdiagnosed by 40-50 Dr's! Unacceptable!.

The IDSA Dr's. need to be working with our ILADS, international Lyme associated disease Dr's. so that we chronic Lyme and co-infection meaning other diseases the ticks carry, can get better and into remission.
