Lyme is very serious. Educate yourself. Thirty days is not adequate to treat Lyme unless it is caught very early, I was treated for over three YEARS. Lyme can cause depression, sleep apnea, fibromyalgia-like symptoms, headaches, IBS, nerve pain, arthritis, chronic sinus infections, plus many, many other symptoms. You may have still been sick from your first infection.
Many people also get other diseases when they get Lyme. These diseases are hard to test for and hard to treat. You have a tough journey ahead of you, and I have to say it again - Educate yourself!
The people in the Lyme forum are pretty helpful. Don't let it all scare you.
Tom - the Lyme vaccine was taken off the market because it caused bad side effects such as arthritis, expecially in people already infected when they got the vaccine.
