Can chronic Lyme lead to Parkinson's ?

On one of my other support groups a doctor had written an article stating that Michael J Fox had chronic Lyme and he believes that turned into his Parkinson's .

I researched this and yes Michael J Fox did battle chronic Lyme. I guess the doctor took an educated guess and linked the two illnesses together. I have heard the same about ALS but does anyone really know for sure?

Just passing it on.
