first of all, thanks to all the contributors on the Lyme subject. I have learnt a lot from your comments and queries. I'm new to this complex infection.
I was bitten while in Mallorca 8 weeks ago. My gp missed the rash and misdiagnosed it(of course) but finally I'm on 2weeks Co-Aminoclav (Amoxicillin), and am one week in.
Im a mum to a 1 year old boy and am very concerned about this disease. I'm worried it may come back from blood testing as a false negative and that my treatment will end there. My gp surgery has been pretty useless and I have had to push for testing and treatment while they have seemed reluctant. I'm pretty sure the infection has migrated further and that my oral penicillin tablets are not doing much.
My question is- what should I look at as an option? Private? any views on this? I'm so keen to nip this now while I'm in early phase. I can not bear to have this crop up again when my little boy is still young. The headache and tinnitus is terrible, and I want to get rid of this once and for all.
I would welcome any views with great appreciation.
