I wanted to chime in on the '2 weeks of treatment' part. As CD said, we see a very high rate of relapses by those that only were treated for 2 weeks - even if it was with 400 - 600 mgs of Doxy. So it could have to do with what all is passed with Lyme at the time, like Bartonella, Babesia, RMSF or viruses that could prove to be too much for the immune system to overcome even with the little bump from the 2 weeks of abx therapy.
So I will never suggest that someone only get 2 weeks of abx treatment, but if that's all they could get and feel better - sometimes a wait and see approach works - but not usually. I always encourage people to at least go to a herbal or other natural protocol for at least another 2 - 4 weeks, even if it's a new infection - just to be sure. Who wants to start all over from the beginning with everything being harder to treat the second time around?
