I had all the symptoms of RMSF when I was 7 yrs old. I had no rash though, which is an atypical presentation, and it was back in 1970, and in California - so it was 'unheard of' and I was not diagnosed properly, nor did I get good treatment.
In 2008, after a full year of treatment for Lyme, I finally tested fully CDC positive for Lyme and RMSF.
