    Those are certainly Lyme symptoms. Do you recall ever getting a bite and/or rash?

    Those are just a few of the symptoms of Lyme. Yours could be a number of things and yes it might also be Lyme.

    Unfortunately with Lyme time is of the essence...

    If you have recently contacted it then it needs fast treatment in order not to become chronic.

    Did you have a recent flu like illness?

    Were you anywhere recently where ticks are present

    Todays news item says it is in South West(Cornwall, Devon and Somerset) as well as Thetford Forest , Norfolk and South east and scotland. 

    What do do>

    UK see your GP (sorry but you won't get much joy there unless you remember the bite and the bulls eye rash) 

    USA see your PCG.- Hopefully he knows about Lyme.

      Hi marianne,

      Yes I read that too and that is how they think it can be transmitted to parners and  children.

      I read a paper where mice have also found to harbour infected mites!

      So 6 weeks is now recommended. GP's won't like that..
