Paul, I do not know the answer to that, but I have, at times, even before Lyme, had mucus down in my throat.
AS concerned as you are, I agree w/ the others. I think it's only fair to ask that your partner be tested -- if this is someone you are able to contact and/or will see again. And I agree w/ CajunGrl, too, about
testing for the other diseases.
I assume you are keeping good track of all your symptoms, writing them down for the Dr, so you don't forget any when you see him. I was lucky, my LLMD read every single word I wrote and took notes from it!
