well yeah. how do they know they dont get it. never heard of this
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards.

I do not know anything about lyme disease in pigs, so I cannot comment about this. If your neighbor is correct, then I hope the info can somehow be used for research to benefit mankind.

However, I have read that when an infected tick feeds on a "blue bellied" lizard or "fence" lizard, the blood of the lizard is able to "clean up" the lyme in the tick and the tick no longer transmits the disease-----at least until it feeds on something else that contains the disease organisms again. I have not seen any scientific papers /research looking into how this knowledge may help find a cure for humans. It just makes me think that we should all have a lot of lizards around our yards to clean up the ticks!! LOL Best wishes to all. bablymers mom

This is especially interesting as pigs have an anatomy most like humans, more than any other animal. D

RD - Lizards DO get Lyme Disease.

Do the ticks get it? (Stupid question I know.)

I think what we need to know is why some people who test positive NEVER get symptoms...That's where my money is on. What is up with them?

Maybe I got my Lyme from a lizard. They're all over the back yard and it appears to be "mating season".
