Last May I dug a tick out of my foot.  Didn't think much of it.  Last year and the years before I spent tons of time in the woods, it wouldn't surprise me if I didn't have one before too (OHIO). 
Couple months later my health spiralled, and is continuing to do so.  Cardio, respiratory, neuro, and now headache/vertigo/buzzing.  Skin itching, bags under eyes, yadda yadda.  Doctors think I'm psychosomatic of course, and try to throw anti depressants at me.
Anyways these are my test results.  They said it's "negative" but if -anything- shows on the test doesn't that mean I was infected at one point or currently am?
Thanks for looking all!  This is a real nightmare.

That test means squat. Ask for a CD57 Striker Panel (LabCorp is the only lab that does this test)- normal levels are 60-300 (mine is 15 and I had a negative Western Blot as well) - I am now on IV Rocephin & oral doxy (2 months now - doc expects I'll be on it for at least 4 to 6 monhths if not longer).

GL - & hugs,
