I just received a positive blood test for Lymes. My neurologist was running a battery of tests due to tingling in my right arm(which seems to have subsided), and a pressure sensation over my right eye, which continues. .

I never had the "big" rash.

I did however get pregnant and have a miscarriage. Along with that came a ton of exhaustion.....thought it was from that anyway.

I have read a lot about this disease and read more about false negatives than postives. I have several questions.

How common is a false positive?

Has anyone else had experience with the "pressure over one eye" sensation(makes me feel like I need to keep pulling my eyelid up...like it is really tired)?

I will be retested this Wed to be sure, but I would like to hear other's experiences.

Much Love and Prayers,

Lisa
