Welcome to our community! If you haven't yet, please do read through our "New to Lyme? Start here!" thread as it's packed with important information about
healing from these infections, symptom lists, probiotic information and detoxing suggestions.
If you are sure that you had a bulls eye rash, then that alone is diagnostic of Lyme disease. You didn't happen to take a picture of it at the time, did you? If so that could be very helpful- even if it wasn't a picture of just the bulls eye rash, but it can be seen in a picture could be helpful.
I would encourage you to print out ILADS treatment guidelines and use it if you are going to try to get (abx antibiotic) treatment as most countries are looking to the US for guidelines on how to treat these infections: www.ilads.org/lyme/treatment-guideline.php
The best lab that I'm aware of is Igenex in California: www.igenex.com/
Although, you need to be aware that since you have a long standing infection, it's likely that no test will pick up the antibodies and even the DNA testing for the bacteria will be difficult because the majority of the bacteria will be in the muscles and tissues rather than the blood or other body fluids where it can be detected. Many do an abx challenge (using high dose abx for a short period just before testing, then stopping the abx for 3 weeks, then testing) to help bring out more bacteria and more of a response from the immune system.
You need a LLMD - A Lyme Literate Medical Doctor, but I don't know if there are any in Finland. I know that I don't have any listed anyway. If you are interested in using herbs to treat these infections, there are several good herbal protocols and you could use an herbalist to help you find the right herbs or order online.
