      Sorry but think  infectious. diseases. are mistaken and  if test came back pos and you have symptoms. then it's one of thelyme coinfections. Did you ask them what is it if not Lyme?

      Keep a note of how the days go. After the months pass we  forget all that happens.

      Just keep on telling them and they might just listen one day.

      Go back to PCP and tell him/her how you feel.

      Some have bad effects with the doxy.

      You need another two weeks antibiotic at least.
