Just wonderingif there is any tests they can do for this disease. Also does everyone get rashes all the time? What are the main symptoms most people get and are they chronic?

    You can do the standard test which is a blood test. It isn't accurate though..most likely will come back negative even though you have it. At least 50% won't get the rash or even remember being bit by a tick. Not only that but more than one kind of bug can carry lyme. Such as spiders, fleas, bed bugs and even mosquitoes. Lyme often comes with the co infections too. Main symptoms are usually fatigue, aches and pains all over, flu like symptoms ect...but there are tons and tons more as I said before. If you'd like I can message you.

    Most doctors want to test by blood which often comes back negative however you can look into a new test that was just discovered where they instead test your urine. This test can show you a specific strand of Lyme and therefore you can get a better result in treating it.
