So here is how it all began and I understand there are no Dr's on here but I just wanted to find out if it is possible that I have early stage Lyme from people who have been down that road.
On May 5, 2012 myself, my GF and dog went for a hike. After the hike there was a tick on my gf's leg and a few on the Dog. None on me.
On Tuesday May 8. 2012 I did find a tick in my hair. I am not sure how it got there I can only assume it came off my dog either that Monday or the Tuesday the day I found it. So I pulled it off and made sure someone checked my head to make sure I got everything out which I did.
The next day I called my Dr and got a script for Doxy which I was told to take one 100mg per day for 14 days. I took the Doxy for 5 days until I went away on 5/14/2012 and I forgot the script at home.
I first got a headache on 5/11/2012 and it lasted until 5/13/2012. When I got back from vacation on 5/19/2012 I started taking the Doxy again. It was one 100mg per day. I stated to read up on Lyme and saw the 100mg per day was not enough so I went to the Clinic and got a 14 day supply taking 2 100mg a day. This was on May 22, I took two 100mg that day and then I was only taking 100mg per day up until yesterday just because I always forgot to take the 2nd one at night.
Going back to the headaches, it came back on 5/19/2012 and I have had it since. It has been a very dull constant headache in the front of my head mostly in my forehead and between my eyes. Also, my head and vision just do not feel right.
I am now making sure I am taking 2 100mg Doxy per day and I have 11 days left. I see my PCP today.
My question is: does this sound like early onset Lyme that has just progressed because I have not been taking the proper dose of doxy. Or are my headaches and sinus pressure unrealted.
Again I know we are not Dr's but I just wanted advise from people who have been there before. Sorry for the long store.
Finally; I did not have a rash and never had any flu like symptoms, just the headaches.
