I believe i have lyme....last year i had two ticks crawling on me at two separate times one on my leg and one on my neck..( i removed a couple from one of my dogs..embedded ) i do not recall being bitten by a tick but that does not mean i wasn't...i brought a bruise like mark on my arm to my drs attn. in nov...he brushed it off...i now have lots of them on my legs back hips stomach and arms..yup pretty much covered...
I have recently seen an internist ..waste of time he saw me twice..and stated they look like bruises..i have no idea...and when you find ou let me know what it is...i was not impressed to say the least...

i now have a dermatology apt coming up..but honestly do not think he will figure it out either..

now my other symptoms coinciced with the fact i have gout...joint pain..swelling..migranes and continual headaches..( already been seeing neurologist for those for years..) stomach bloating and nausea and constant feeling of being ill..just not feeling how i should...under the weather ..hard to explain when asked...feel like the drs do not believe me or are now brushing me off..

so now i am on the search for anyone who i familiar with what a rash would look like months after possibly being bitten...

not sure if i can post pics on here..hope i don't get in trouble...

Hi debg - welcome to our community.

Well, since you have had ticks crawling on you and have symptoms that could be attributed to lyme disease, I think it warrants testing, and a LL Dr. appt.

You can upload your photos to a 3rd party site like Photobucket or Tinypic.com

Then put a link here in a post to the photos.
