Good link, Utahgal, except that we have surpassed AIDS numbers now, so I'm not sure how much of that information may be outdated - but they do cover some basics that are important.
No, LP, my hubby hasn't been tested and likely won't - he sees it as unnecessary spending since he shows no signs or symptoms. he has his own medical issues going on. He has a little known about
condition called Factor V (five, as in the number) that almost killed him and he lives with a lot of pain and disability due to it. I've explained that it could have started with a tick-borne infection, but he has never shown symptoms and has 'enough to deal with' - in his words. He has promised me though, that if he ever shows symptoms that I am truly worried about
, he will get tested and/or start treatments.
But I agree with you - it would be interesting!
