Lyme Disease Anitra

Does anyone know anything about Lyme disease I have ms but I am getting tested as I got bitten.Thankyou anitra for your advise as I have the rash I wouldn’t have thought about it unless you replied to my question.I have been given antibiotics.

Ah, good for you - I’m surprised you’ve been able to see someone about it already, and am glad you’ve been given antibiotics as a precaution. I think it’s pretty treatable if caught early like that, but can have nasty MS-like complications if neglected. Lyme disease is a standard test when MS is suspected. If you already have MS, you definitely don’t want lyme disease on top, do you? I’m glad your doc took it seriously, and didn’t think you were being silly.

Hi Tina, In fact it was the out of hours doctor,that said about Lyme disease and is getting my blood done tomorrow to test for it.I appreciate you answering the question because I didn’t know about the disease. Thanks very much X

Gosh, out-of-hours doctors don’t have a very good reputation (seen an awful example on these forums just lately), so I’m glad you got one who seems to be really on-the-ball.
