Hi. My daughter is 12. 2 summers ago she had one day felt tired sore throats loagy. Then she was fine within that week I noticed under her arm a bulls eye rash. I immediately got her to the dr. They treated her for Lyme. Lab tests were positive. During her antibiotics course she got a mild form of Bell's palsy that went away. Lasted maybe a week if that. Then she finished her meds and we continue on with life. In march 2017 she complained 3 times that her eye was blurry so I took her to an eye dr. Her vision is 20/20 but on the scan he did he noticed these spots on the affected eye. So I took her to a retina specialist he dilated her and saw these areas also and said they were inflammation. He did an angio of her eye and saw them still but by the pattern couldn't determine the cause. So he drew 18 tubes of blood looking for a cause. Everything is normal but her Lyme. And the western blot has 4 that are positive. I am an RN and work with an adult ID dr. I had her look she says I'd treat it with iv antibiotics. Currently I'm in hold waiting for her pediatrician to call tomorrow and seeing where to take her and what to do. I have researched. I know there can be co infections etc. looking for a Lyme literate dr. Not sure if that's what I need to find. I live in upstate ny. I was told there is a family dr in little falls that Lyme literate. What should I push for. Any help is greatly appreciated. She really hasn't complained except says her knees click and hurt at times and her feet hurt. But she isn't consistent with complaining.
