    Unhappy I'm very nervous

    I'm going to the doctor today. I've been feeling lousy for the past four days, thinking I had a touch of the flu. Fever, sore throat, coughing, and achy all over and then yesterday I spotted a bullseye type rash on the back of my arm, and then I remembered having a tick bite there a few days before. At the time I didn't think much of it, just pulled it out and put alcohol on the bite. Anyhow there was something on tv about lyme disease a few weeks ago and I remembered that it produces flu like symptoms and also the bulls-eye rash. So now I'm freaking out, I had a cousin who had this and was really bad for him. They didn't catch it for a while with him though, and I read online if caught early most recover 100% with antibiotics.

    I really really hate going do the doctor, seen enough of them already! Plus the fact I know they'll have to take blood and I'm very afraid of needles.

    Sorry you have to go thru this but youre catching it early and you should do just fine have a few friends who have gone thru this the only one who hard time was the one who was in denial and didnt seek treatment Close your eyes when they draw the blood and after treat yourself to something like an ice cream sundae for being a big girl. Lets us know how you are take care

    Thanks y'all for the good thoughts.

    It is lyme's disease. Ten days of doxycycline and I should be good to go.

    I am glad you are going to the doctor. Your symptoms do sound like lyme disease so the sooner you get there, the better.

    Well I sure hope I don't have to take it that long, third pill and my belly is already upset.

    Thanks again everyone.

    I'm glad to hear you went to the doctor and they caught it early, espcially with flu season just around the corner. Prayers and hugs.
