It looks you got some infection from tick bites, I would not bother about
Even with a positive exam, your drs will only give you a few weeks of antibiotics. It's not enough.
If I were you, I would treat myself with herbs or some zapper like Hulda Clarks or both. If you improve, that's what matters.
Some symptoms you describe may even be babesiosis. How you're going to find anyone to prescribe you the right treatments?
I would invest my time, energy and resources to find a solution by myself. Meanwhile, you can still send your blood to igenex. But suppose you get a negative exam, even that is not a warrant you are Lyme free.
And if Peru is already getting some coinfections, are you going to spend your life trying to find out?
Finding a positive diagnosis is just a small part of the problem. The biggest problem, no matter where you live, is to find treatment.
That's why I would inform myself with books such as Buchner or other treatment modalities, start treating as fast as possible, and meanwhile you may still send your blood here and there to get some confirmation.
I saw a couple of papers published in Brazil about
Lyme. It seems tha number of cases are increasing there. Some universities there are starting own research as pathogens there look different than in the USA or Europe.
Do a search in Portuguese with the words "doença de Lyme", infecçāo, estudo, pesquisa or something like that.
Researches there are still investigating Lyme in a more free way than here in Europe or in the states. Maybe that's because only a few cases have appeared. If you find nothing, I can try to help you.
