1. Is it possible for Lyme related severe anxiety to begin within 2 months of the bite or is that too early? An anxiety unlike any other. Feeling physical more than mental-- muscles tense, cramp, spasm.
2. Since deer carry the Lyme and give it to the ticks, do you think it would be possible to contract lyme from deer feces? One of my dogs rolls in it almost DAILY, so we bathe a lot, but you know my hands would come in contact w/ it. I have not found a discussion on this anywhere.
3. WHY is the med profession, including ID Drs in such denial about Lyme? If a person has the symptoms and the spirochetes are present in the blood, what is their issue? Have they not looked at the spirochetes or do they believe the spirochetes don't mean anything? I understand the diagnosis is difficult and the tests unreliable. However, if a child aquires Lyme from it's mother, and is born w/ spirochetes in the blood and neurlogical issues, etc, WHY would they claim this is impossible??
Hello Lymeunknown, I also have a dog who just thurned 3 and has anaplasmosis from a tick bite. She is allergic to tick collars. Even though she is on frontine plus I have to check her carefully after being outside--we have 8 acres in the hudson valley-new york the heart of tickcountry. She is in in-door dog but I am outside alot which is why I got lyme in the first place. Anyway... I found a vet who is holistic and gave me the name of a repellent called FLICKS. It is used for horses but it is all completely natural and she swares it repells ticks on her dog. I got some and used it this weekend. It is a concentrate to be mixed with water. I found it online-google it.
I don't think lyme feces will give them lyme but it could give them other things like worms viruses, etc.
I can give you a copy of under your skin if you can't get one. Send your email to me mine is in my profile. Blessings
