Hi Gary,

I did a little research since I didn't know offhand.  Bed bugs aren't in the tick family.  Bed bugs have 6 legs and ticks have 8.

From what I've read, bed bugs aren't thought to transmit anything, BUT they have been know to be carriers of various things, they do deposit saliva when they bite, and they do suck blood.  I've read that fleas and lice have been known to transmit Lyme.  Based on those three facts, I wouldn't be surprised if bed bugs really can transmit parasites or bacteria, etc. just because it seems like common sense.

Did you find out exactly what parasite you have?  Is the doctor treating it with antibiotics or something else?  Are you feeling better yet? (I hope)

Sorry for jumping in on this forum (I'm a lymie), but I want to reiterate what KCLyme suggested. I don't know much about adrenal problems. Can they cause nightsweats? Nightsweats are a pretty common lyme symptom. That's actually what got me thinking lyme -- a med school friend of mine was like "Umm, you have NIGHTSWEATS? That is WEIRD." So I thought ok, something unusual here... Anyway, I hope you figure out what's wrong!
