I'm not sure astroman. I dont know enough about it.
I'd like to get tested by a neuro for this.
astro, you got lyme in the 80s, and then you had the rash in the 90s? Excuse my naivete, but I was always under the impression that you only saw the rash as soon as you got bit. Is that not the case? You can get the rash at any point in time? I know I've got the cats claw rash, but have never had the bulls eye.
Spent a lot of time in the north woods in mn and wisc starting in the 80's but had occurrence of ticks on me my whole life since a boy is the 70's, so its quite possible/probable that I was infected many times.
Since there is something about
us that makes us develop Lyme vs some who will carry but without symptoms, so it seem highly likely of multiple occurrences I would think.
I did however have a "title wave" of symptoms at once the same time of a bulls eye which was very early 90's I think. Time flies.
lyme literate phyc are rare, but I did see one who is now retired. Was a very interesting physical/mental 10 hr test. He ruled out other possibilities to which are noticed in that filed of study, as sometimes he found other things to be the cause. It was a $1200 2 day exam which to my surprise, insurance actually covered. I also had a brain MRI which showed no lesions.
