I am anxious to ask my LLMD this question, but that'll be another 3 weeks, so I will ask all of you.
 
Does anyone know if there is ANY way to determine if there was a Bb infection a very long time ago? Even if one has been reinfected and tests come out positive, is there any way to determine if there was also an infection, like over 30 years ago? Or would this all have to be clinical?  
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.

There is a guess by the symptoms you have. People with MS which is Lyme disease after a thirty year infection. That is an example. but then there is the factor that everyones body is effected differently. And symptoms may progress faster or slower for others. But it is a general idea that multiple sclerosis developes after a thirty year infection of lyme as well as alzheimers after maybe 40. Parkinsons maybe wrongly diagnosed earlier though. Just tell people to be aware that any disease without a scource may be lyme. It is now the last to test for. someday it will be the first. I am so passionate. Excuse the extra info. thanks
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.

No, there is no way to test for previous exposure that is accurate. Clinical diagnosis is the best way, therefore, to determine whether there was a Lyme exposure a long time ago.

its odd dont ya think that they have no ideal what causes MS, they belive it caused from some kind of spores and mainly its find in people liven in cooler climets.hmm sound familer. but the other thing is it usealy hits women between 20 to 40. this is what i fond when resreching MS. but in my sreching i came to the conclusion that 1 is just as evil as the other in there own rights. nether 1 of them has a cure , but MS is getting respeck from the Dr. where lyme does not. MS is getting resrech funding seems to me lyme does not.

I believe MS has more than one cause...Lyme is capable of mimicing the symptoms of MS...Vitamin D deficiency appears to be a factor in the development of MS (MS is rare in tropical areas).
