    i found a tick on my today and plucked it off of me--there's a round red sore spot. my doc prescribed 3 days of doxy. says that's all i need unless i start to have some symtoms. is that true? or should i insist on 30 days of doxy?

    thanks.

    Absolutely not. I would go on Doxy for a minimum of 30 days. Did you send the tick for testing? With your history of CFS have you ever considered Lyme?
