Thank you for your question. I suggest that you speak with your doctors
">doctor. Lyme disease is a disease that is not unheard of in certain parts of the US. That being said, it is far from common and is not often the cause of patient's complaints. Doctors like to think about it because it can cause a wide range of symptoms, and is something that can be treated if properly diagnosed. Unfortunately, it is difficult for me to say if your symptoms are due to Lyme disease, but your doctor should be able to have that discussion with you. If he or she feels it is appropriate, there is testing that can be done and can help in some instances to let you know if you are having long term consequences from that sort of infection. Your doctor may not feel that this sort of testing is appropriate, however, and may recommend that you have different testing or see a specialist who may be able to help with the medical problems that you are describing. Please speak with your doctor about your question and what the next steps should be for your situation.
