Just under 3 weeks ago I noticed a bump on my foot that I presumed to be some kind of insect bite. Over the next two weeks it developed into a red rash with a raised, darker edge. With the inside clearing as time went on.
This week I've been to see my GP and also been to a walk in clinic. As I live in south london which is an usual place to get ticks, both doctors have been hesitant to diagnose as Lyme Disease and have not prescribed antibiotics despite everything i've read online saying that the rash is enough for them to prescribe.I have been given a blood test but am worried as i have read they often give false negative results.
Over the lat few days I have been feeling increasingly tired and also have worsening headache and aches at the bottom of my back and between my shoulder blades.
I would very much appreciate some advice on what to do next especially regarding the fact my local doctors are so inexperienced with lyme disease.
