Hello to everybody.
First of all sorry if my english is not perfect, I write from Italy.
I'm looking for an opinion concerning a possible rising of Lyme symptoms. Up to your experience, is it possible to develop Lyme symptoms 1 year later the latest tick bite (at least the late one that I remember!)?
Here in Italy tick infections are not endemic, except one specific area in the North-east, but I travel every summer to Czech Republic, in the center on Europe, where this is a wildespread problem. I was bitten in summer 2011 but had no health problems until summer 2012. In that year I didn't go to Czech Republic so it's impossible that I got the tick bite that year. I'm investigating with blood tests, but what if they'll come out negatives and I have Lyme anyway? That's why I'm trying to understand if it's possible that my immune system had fight well the infection until 2012 when I passed through a bad period of physical and phycological stress.
Thanks a lot for your opinions!
