Backstory - It started a few days ago, me and some friends were visiting Copenhagen. I sat down on a bench and immediately felt a strange pain on the back of my thigh. I ignored it for a little while but noticed it was getting hot and painful, the skin felt hard even through my jeans. So I went and had a look at it, and I had an enormous "bullseye" rash. I also developed some horrible cold/flu symtpoms that same day.
That night I was shivering and cold, and developed hives on my feet and arms. We tried to call someone but I couldn't see a health professional in Denmark so had to wait til we got back to the UK the next day.
I went to the hospital last night and they told me it was just an allergic reaction, the nurse gave me 1 weeks worth of Flucloxacilline. My cold/flu symtpoms have got much worse, with a strange pressure in my head that is causing my hearing to be strange, like I'm underwater with a constant ringing in my ears. I keep getting sharp pains in my ears as well (from the sinus pressure?)
The rash has gotten a bit bigger, and where it was clear in the middle ring it's now gone a weird yellowy colour.
All these symptoms seem to point to lyme disease, but no one has mentioned it yet. I've got another doctors appointment tomorrow, don't really know what to say. Am I getting too paranoid?
