Default re: Two rashes - Lyme Testing

Did they do a Western Blot after the ELISA? They always do that here when it comes back positive or equivocal(as mine did).

What tests did they do for autoimmune disease? They did thyroid, celiac, ANA, and Rheumatoid Factor for me(all came back normal). A rheumatologist also gave me a physical exaimination where he checked my reflexes and moved and squeezed my limbs in a variety of ways. He then said Lyme is pretty much the only thing I could have.

Pretty much all of your symptoms are similar to mine, and I've noticed them gradually get better on Doxy. My family doctor said 21 days would be enough, but my Rheumy said 40 at minimum, and after that we would discuss IV drugs.
