What is the best way to treat a patient with Lyme disease and MS?

There are guidelines for the treatment of neurologic Lyme disease. There are also guidelines for the treatment of M.S. A person can have both at the same time. Certainly, one would want to make sure neurologic Lyme disease is treated. One also however wants to make sure that the patient is taking maximal advantage of the many helpful treatments of MS that are available.
