Default re: diagnosed with lyme disease but not bitten by a tick

Hi Karben,
You might have been bitten by a tick and never even knew. My dad has Lymes also and does not recall ever being bitten by a tick or getting the "bull's eye" rash that comes along with the Lymes tick bite. After researching Lymes extensively, I found that many people do not ever get the "bull's eye" rash and never even know that they have been bitten by a tick. There are chances that you can get false negative and false positive readings from the Lymes test. I reccommend the I Gene X lab in Palo Alto, CA. They are known for accurate findings. It doesn't hurt to get tested again just to make sure, and that lab is outstanding. You can order the test through the mail. If you would like more info on it, let me know. We have been pleased with the treatments my dad has received so far. If it is just Lymes and strep that you have, be thankful. If the docs have not put an ALS diagnosis along with the other illnesses, then you are a lucky person.
Best of luck,
Dana
