I know, every doctor I have met focused on 'tick bite'.
I just say bit b/c I was bit on the back of my lower leg.
When I turned around to swat at it, it was already gone.
The bite hurt, it felt deeply painful!
It left a very painful bruise days later and it grew really large over the next weeks. Whatever bit me, gave me lyme, and I don't believe ticks do hit-and-runs.
My ND speculated that it was a deer fly and another doctor said the bruise looked like a spider bite. I don't know, but it sure gave me a severe lyme infection.
Thanks for posting, always good to hear others with a similar experience that didn't involve a stinky tick.
I'm sorry you got bit.
How do you like the Cowden protocol?
I did oral abx, Buhner's and IV rocephin over the last two years.
I am not done yet, either. I'm improved, but definitely not done.
