    Agreed, Ruel, although these days, if you walk into a clinic, tell em you feel off, tell em you work outside, I think most all docs will start you on antibiotics immediately, no testing etc.

    wow! That's significant, for sure!
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    How quickly do you feel the symptoms?
    I am umbilically connected to the temperate zone, it brought me life, it brought me love I never have out grown.

    Lyme disease is bad, but the use of antibiotics for undefined maladies is not good either. https://www.cdc.gov/features/antibioticuse/index.html

    What's that country song? About checking each other for ticks?

    Rash presents in under half of confirmed lyme cases. If my dr hadn't been proactive and well informed, the first time I got lyme it could have gone undiagnosedfor ages. Presented w nothing but vague symptoms of joint ache, fatigue and weakness.

    Agreed...the standard symptoms are often not observed.
