I don't think anything triggered mine. After I got bit for the 3rd time in 03 had a bullseye when my arm swelled up to my neck is when all hell broke loose for me. After 1 month of doctor shoppingnd a lyme test I finally got 1 month of doxy, then another month only after begging for it. A year or so after is when the headaches and pressure began about
the same time I felt crawling sensations on my legs. I then began doxy and amoxy for 5 months however it was not a llmd it was a friend who had mercy on me and gave me what I asked for even though I didn't know what to ask for. It wasn't until many many doctors later that 4 years and total misery drifted by that I finally saw a llmd and found out about
the co-infection and thyroid issues.
