Hi dobbymom - welcome!
I'm sorry you have lyme disease, but am glad you found us here.
Yes, your test results are showing positive for LD.
It does sound like a new infection, since your symptoms started only a few weeks ago.
The next step is to find a Lyme Literate Dr. to treat you.
We can help with that. Just start a new thread titled: "Looking for LLMD in/near_____" and fill in the blank with the city you live in.
LLMD = Lyme Literate Medical Doctor.
Then when you call the LLMD office, explain it's a recent infection...and if they don't have an appt available in the next couple weeks...see if you can be put on a waitlist for a cancellation.
Timing is key. The sooner you treat at this stage, the better your chances are of it not becoming a chronic infection.
In the meantime, you should find a Dr. or go to Urgent care and try to get a few weeks of abx.
Doxycycline 200 mg twice daily.
Then see if you can get another prescript
ion from a second Dr. for the same.
Do what you can to start treating immediately...and have it carry you until the LLMD appt.
Many of us did not see a tick on us...or a bite mark...or bulls-eye rash.
