I pulled a tic from my stomach. I used a match to back i out and used the tweezers to get it off. It was alive and walking around afterwards. I sent it out for testing and caled the doctor
but, he will not treat me unless I develop symptoms which takes about three weeks. Isn't this ludicrous? by that time, should I have it, how long do you have to take treatment. I have doxycylcline and am thinking about taking it for three weeks, but I am not sure about the side effects and if a an ounce of prevention is woth a pound of cure.
does anyone have anyhing to share or advise on this?
