Mycoplasma infections can be quite dangerous if left untreated. This was taken from www.lymediseaseblog.com/mycoplasma-overlooked-lyme-co-infection/
"The most common specie, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, typically causes respiratory infections like pneumonia, bronchitis, pharyngitis, and asthma. But it’s a stealth pathogen that can also cause non-respiratory diseases affecting the nervous system, blood, joints, skin, heart, liver, and pancreas."
Those happen to be the same things Lyme and other co-infections can cause as well, so you would need to see a Lyme Literate Medical doctor to sort everything out properly so that you can get the right treatment.
Lyme bacteria are highly adept at hiding from the immune system - not only do they suppress it, but they can change what is known as the outer surface protein so that the body believes the infection is gone. It can also hide in other ways. High doses of specific abx are needed for extended periods of time to be effective with these infections.
Please do find a doctor who is truly qualified to treat these infections (an LLMD) so that you have the opportunity to heal.
As Borderlyme pointed out, it sounds like you are describing a typical Bull's eye rash - and Lyme is the only
disease that produces this type of rash, because that is the skin form of this disease. This means if you've had the rash, you have Lyme.
You are so right about
getting "Mini diagnoses"!! It seems that most of us go through the list of different types of doctors, getting those mini diagnoses until we seek out a Lyme Literate Medical doctor to help us sort these things all out!
I saw this posted somewhere else a while back. What the diagnosis would be for those doc's that just can't bring themselves to say Lyme Disease: Multiple Neuro Fibro Arthritic Myalgia Fatigue Syndrome .... or MNFAMFS for short! LOL!
Co-Moderator, Lyme Disease ;)

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, making long paragraphs very hard to read.
