Got bitten by a tick in July, pretty sure I removed it within 12 hours and definitely didn't have the rash.
In September woke up with a severe back pain on the left shoulder after a week or so this faded and started up on right shoulder which also faded but started across the lower back and that hasn't gone away. Almost impossible to put socks on or pick anything up off the floor.
Went to the doc and he did a battery of blood tests which all came back negative except the borrelia blood test came back with the phrase "due to prior tick bite Lyme can not be ruled out", which seemed very ambiguous.
As a precaution the doc prescribed 2 weeks of doxycycline which
I've now completed but don't feel it has had any effect.
Still got lower back pain and think I'm starting to feel muscle twitches in my face (facial twitch might be pschosomatic!)
I'm still not sure whether it is Lyme or not. Has anybody been through this type of symptom scenario and also does anybody know what the ambiguous blood wording means?
