I too would say that it's a Bulls eye rash, which means that you have definitely had the skin form of Lyme. Left untreated, it moves on into the body. Since you have told us that you have a couple of the symptoms, it would be best for you to see a LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) or a LLND (Lyme Literate Naturopathic Doctor), or other Lyme Literate Practitioner.
If you need help in finding a Doctor for treatment in your area, you can start a new thread titled something like:"Looking for LLMD in the _______ area." Although you will need to enable your email option in your profile in order to receive any recommendations, as we don't allow doctor's names and contact info to be posted on the forum for several reasons. You can enable your email option in your profile, under 'edit profile'. Be sure to click the submit button to actually save your preference.

You can also go to The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link:www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277&Itemid=74
You will want to find an ILADS (International Lyme And Associated Diseases Society) trained doctor, as ID Docs (Infectious Disease Doctors) believe Lyme is hard to catch and easy to treat, and don't believe in the reality of chronic Lyme. The ILADS site is another great place to read to get you started on your Lyme journey. www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/treatment_guidelines_clearing_ilads.html
As Deejavu has said, please do read through our "New to Lyme? Start here!" thread as it's packed full of important information, symptom lists (as Lyme doesn't usually travel alone!), detoxing instructions, helpful pdf's and more!
