I am 26 and was out in the wood when but by a tick. Four days after I notice it was latched on behind my knee. I removed it not knowing and thought no more about it. Two weeks later I fell I'll with flue symptoms went to a&e feeling quite I'll with fatigue and was tested for lymes and the test result was negative. I then got a round circle on my leg and another on the other leg. I went to the docs and they said they thought it was unusual and wouldn't be lymes Ecuador I wasn't in a area where they have been reported before. BRISTOl so I got a second opinion and got a blood test that came back positive. I was put on amoxocillin 500mg 3 times a day for 3 weeks. I have been on it two weeks now and have been experiencing sharp pains in my left hand side under my breast when I breath and yesterday started getting spasms in my back. Phoned the docs and been told they are symptoms of the lymes disease and not to worry because I have been given treatment. My treatment was delayed by two months due to the first test being negative so I'm worried that there wrong and the disease has worsened and that there lack of knowledge with this disease could lead me to get sick. Does anyone have any suggestion?
