Worried about Lyme

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi everyone. A month ago I woke up with two bites (one on my hand and one on my wrist). They were skin-colored at first and itchy and then turned into what you see in the pictures and stopped itching. The rash/reaction went away that night and only the bite marks remained. Since it was the first time I got a reaction that bad I googled it and all I could see was Lyme. I tried to ignore it and also had no symptoms but now a week ago I started having joint and muscle pain, which is either from anxiety or it means that this was in fact a lyme tick. Can you please give me your opinion before I go to an LLMD? Thank you.

    Hello there, I am sorry your going through this, I was a Lyme sufferer for 2 years. In my opinion based on that bite and the way your feeling is all the more reason to go to the doctor; yes it could be anxiety, but it also could be something else. I say go to the Lyme specialist and it explain to him how your feeling. If it is Lyme it will get worse, if you wanna watch your symptoms for a while before going thats fine too. I really think you should go to the doctor though, thats what I would do. Better safe than sorry. Hope I helped a tad.
