Someone posted on this movie, Under Our Skin, last year when the movie was just released. It looks like it is getting another push for Oscar season. It's on the shortlist of 15 films for the Best Documentary Feature Oscar.
The topic of chronic long term lyme disease, or post lyme disease syndrome is one I didn't really have time to get into in class. It's an interesting topic.
A gripping tale of microbes, medicine & 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.
