Just wondering, here..... I understand that lab tests cannot prove that the Lyme has been cured. But shouldn't Drs at least be testing the blood to see if there are still any positives?? I realize a lot of patients will still be left out in the cold, but maybe if everyone were tested again before releasing from treatment, the Drs would realize that there are too many who still have spirochetes and symptoms after 'treatment'!
Lyme in NC in 1971? Suspect TBI: Fully engorged tick followed by high fever and tonsillitis. Follwed by , lumps on neck, chronic tonsillits w/ constant low grade to recurring high (104) fevers, severe unexplained neck stiffness and acute neck pain.

What was this??
