This is why it's important to get a shower and check thoroughly BEFORE going to bed.  The tick could have already been in there from the night before or could have come from a pet.  The less time it is on your body, the less chance of a critical reaction.

Not necessarily. I've had Lymes and i actually have tested positive many times after that. I shower daily, sometimes twice and never saw a tick or a bullseye. My doc said they can get in between ur toes even with socks and shoes on, on ur scalp where u can't see due to your hair etc. Showering doesnt always remove them and like mine they can go undetected. The only reason I was tested was because i went to the Dr for muscle aches and bad headaches which i never get.

Remember that mosquitoes can transmit too, as well as bodily fluids from an infected person.

I'm sure he is already aware of the potential.

Some people believe google, others prefer to listen to their Dr.  I am one to listen to my Dr.  If u google "can Lymes be transmitted" there are a couple articles from 2014 saying maybe and a whole lot of others that says there is no proof that it is. Regardless of what anyone reads, ask your Dr if you do get Lymes and wonder. Don't depend on Google articles. I have tested positive several times between 2011 and 2017 and my hubby never got it and i am happily married :lol:

My doctor, Dr. Parlavecchio, said we did not have Lymes Disease here in Pennsylvania.  A year later he finally agreed to test me and the titer came back so high he apologized.  Dr Horth told my mother she had a pulled muscle in her back.  She died of a twisted intestine.  I could go on and on but it's useless.

This post is the reason I joined this forum. I have a loved one that has lymes.  It took months for this person to get the proper diagnosis. At one point this person could barely walk. I could go one and on how horrible this disease can be and is. It just doesn’t go away it goes in remission. But for us every time it comes back it comes back stronger.

Very true. I have taken the meds more times then i care to count. The meds are horrible on the stomach. Some people are almost crippled from it. Im sorry your loved one has been hit so hard with it.

I first had it when it was yet unnamed accurately about 1955.  They knew it was some sort of an infection from a tick, but couldn't properly identify it.  Since then I've always had muscle and joint problems.  Then I got it again in my 30s and ended up going to the Pennsylvania State Infectious Disease specialist in Altoona, Dr. Steele who was familiar with the ongoing research.  He said from my blood tests, they felt I had had it before, probably when I was a kid.  When he contacted my childhood doctor and they conferred, they both agreed that it was most likely what I had been sick with for months and never quite got rid of.  The second bout about did me in, and I wasn't treated for over a year.  

Since then I concentrate on keeping my immune system as healthy as possible.  No chemicals that I can keep out of my system, no antibiotics that I can avoid, sunshine, nutrients that build resistance, regular sleep habits, strict stressor avoidance and in the last two years I brew my own Kombucha.  I have to say that I am feeling better than I have in MANY years, and while I am getting older and my joint surgeries have taken a toll on my mobility, I now seem to be able to fight off illnesses that used to put me in the hospital regularly.

I haven't had an allergy shot in a couple of years, my doctors are all impressed with how well I heal from the surgeries.  I'm never quite sure if I am sick because colds and stomach problems are so mild I can barely tell that I have anything.

If there's one bit of advice I can give from long experience with this infection, make your health a priority and work at keeping yourself naturally strong.

Research is always ongoing and all doctors today are part of continuing education to keep up with it.  They learn every day, but as usual there are some who aren't at the top of their game.

Quacks happen such as the doctor who was just arrested in DuBois.  He had it coming for many years before they acted.  

You have to work WITH your doctor to make sure they are able to give you the top information in correct and complete detail.  Otherwise both of your decisions can be flawed.

If it were a disease that affected tourism, like Zika, there would be a state of emergency. Where is the urgency to deal with Lymes in our government?

Good grief, my brain fails me now.  He was from the Philippines and had offices in Sykesville and on Scribner Avenue.  It was months ago.
