Exclamation Spider??

After I tested positive for some infections (Ehrlichiosis among others) I have been wondering how I could have gotten these infections. I haven't been in the woods for the past few years. I’m a city guy.

The other day I saw a spider running across my bed. Now if there’s one, there’s reason to believe that there’s more nearby. Now I'm thinking maybe I got the infections from a spider bite.

Re: Spider??

Hi 1qwerasdf. Many, if not most, people who have Lyme do not remember getting bitten. Ticks are everywhere. I got bitten going into a business, not in a wooded area.

I read somewhere that 75% of Lyme cases are contracted on residential property. That surprised me.

I don't know what other vectors there may be for Lyme transmission. I believe there is still much to learn.

Re: Spider??

I knew someone who had lyme for 15 years before she relized that was what she had. Just because you were resently diagnosed doesnt nesisrily mean it was recently contracted.
