People say they are aware if a tick gets on them. Not so.
If this was in you ear , in your hair or on your lower back etc. … no way would you find it.
A low percentage of people get a rash and a low number of doctors are able to quickly diagnose the potpourri of illnesses that nature’s dirty needles, i.e., insects, pass along to unsuspecting victims. It took doctors five long years to find out what was wrong with me.
Welcome to Stage 3, chronic Lyme hell.
At the end of the day, I ordered the test myself from Igenex and gave it to my Canadian doctor to do the blood draw. I told her that I thought I may have Lyme.
I had that and more.
Oh … did I mention that I did see an ER doctor in British Columbia five years earlier, and I showed symptoms of a high temp, flu-like symtomns and a bullseye rash? He said I had shingles , didn’t treat me for Lyme and sent me packing.
I’m just one of many. Pay attention and learn more about this plague. It will save you and the ones you love as well. And, it also is a city problem … not just associated with outdoors people.
