Hi Kerosene -
We lived in the south for a time. We brought our love of sweet tea up north with us.
We, too, have been bitten by numerous ticks. GI symptoms are very prevalent in our daughter. Just recently she tested positive for Rocky Mountain Spotted fever.
RMSF can be transmitted by a Lone Star Tick and is found in CO and the south. Also, Bartonella is another bugger that can wreak havoc on the GI system.
You didn't state if you have been seen by an LLMD or LLND. If you haven't, I would. Not that my daughter is free and clear but we are getting answers that traditional medicine haven't been able to provide.
Warm wishes for a great day.
