Hello Everyone, I can't believe it. I am so happy she found the rash. They put her on Amoxy she will send me dose later. I'm freakin out, I have lived Lyme hell for the last 5 years. I don't want my Mom to go threw this.
 
I have my Sister taking a picture of the rash, what else do we do?
 
I was neved Diagnosed easily so I am not sure what to do when you catch it right away.
 
She is in Minnesota do they have the co-infections there. I am sure they won't test for that.
 
Anyone know how to get those tests done through normal docs in Mn.
 
Please any advice would help.
Finding Peace In This Crazy World !

Really,

Absolutely everything I have read says that w/ a bull's eye rash, no test is needed. The rash itself is a positive diagnosis for Lyme, and lyme only. As for testing for co-infections, I don't know. She should be able to find out what labs her insurance contracts with and try looking them up online. Once on the lab website, try searches for babs, bart, etc. Due to her rash being a positive for a TBI, she should be able to request tests for co-infections. I just do not know how reliable they are. Hopefully someone here w/ more knowledge than I can speak to that.
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.   Followed by tonsillectomy, urinary tract infections, miscarriage, appendicitis while pregant, chronic severe back pain. Followed by depression, mild anxiety, mitral valve prolapse, and hypglycemia.  What was this??
 
Bit again couple of times, lyme suspect bite Mother's Day 2007. Bite, symptoms, lyme specific antibodies on the most lyme specific band of all = 39 IgG.  Still awaiting appt w/ LLMD.
