    I can find out more details if you want me to.

    Good luck with any treatment
    A dark peaker has recently been Diagnosed with LD, I believe he's a Professor/Doctor of entomology. Article in the DP news if you want to read it.

    I have also been referred to an infectious and tropical diseases consultant. I doubt he will be able to ad any more, as the treatment seems to be having an effect, which surely means it is right
    Glad you got a diagnosis and more importantly that treatment is working.

    Really glad to hear you are on the mend. Any chance of knowing what the blood tests showed, and which antibiotic(s) you are on?

    Best wishes

    Seems to be some shifting over the pond on this http://www.newyorker.com/online/blog...lyme-wars.html

    Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness in the world today. Until recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported an average of only 30,000 cases of Lyme disease per year in the United States. Three preliminary CDC studies, however, have indicated that the true incidence of Lyme disease may be greater than 300,000 cases and as high as one million cases per year in the United States.
    I'm not qualified to vouch for the quality of this study.

    I've noticed a shift in the bike/cat photo ratio lately on Farcebook, so she must be improving!?

    Well spotted I am indeed getting better. Riding again Still got a fair bit to go. Had loads of bloods done, as the consultant thinks I have a few co-infections too...

    P.s. rotating through combos of different antibiotics, pulsed, supported by a shed load of supplements...
