Re: Tick bite 5 months later

You may want to go back to your doctor and have him look to see if the head of that tick is still in you. That happened to me, I broke the head off..guy at ER dug it out...

A short course of doxy is not enough for treating Lyme or any co-infection. It would be wise to see a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor. (LLMD) Sounds as though you have something going on and before it gets any worse see a specialist that can help. Regular Gp's treat with low dose antibiotics ...it is NOT enough.

Hope you feel better soon!
