I am so sorry to hear that about
your Dad & sister!!!
I have had Valley Fever- and although I tested positive for it years ago, I don't have any way of separating the symptoms of Valley Fever from the symptoms of LD & other tick-borne infections that I had at that time.
Fortunately my symptoms from Valley Fever were not severe enough to require hospitalization. From what I understand (& remember
) each person reacts differently - some won't even know that they are positive for Valley Fever because their symptoms were so mild, and of course, as you said happened to your family, there are those that react violently.
I haven't read where Dr. Rosner said it could be related to tick-borne infections though. I was told that Valley Fever was from tiny spores that happen to live in that particular area. It was said that if you lived in the Phoenix Valley for 5 years or more - you could count on getting or having had Valley Fever.
Again - I'm sorry to hear about
your Dad & Sister. I hope they are well soon!!

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, which makes long paragraphs very hard to read.
