    ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT TO LOOKFOR IF YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH LYME 7 YRS AGO, TOOK AB'S OVER AN OVER AGAIN, TILL THE LAST ONES TOOK EFFECT. I STARTED FEELING HUMAN AGAIN. WENT TO AN INFECTOUS DISEASE SPECIALIST. TOLD ME I WOULD ALWAYS TEST POSSITIVE FOR LYME BUT IT WILL LIE DORMENT. WELL THE OTHER DAY I JUST PULLED OUT A VERY SMALL TICK FROM MY ARM, COULD I GET IT ALL OVER AGAIN?
    ANY IDEAS WILL BE WELCOMED.
    I HAD GOTTEN THE BULLESEY RASH. MY GLANDS GOT SO SWOLLEN UNDER MY ARM I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.

    I'm so sorry to hear that you've been bitten yet again. If I were you I would get immediate attention from an LLMD. I do strongly believe that you CAN be re-infected. Get going, and fast, to a very knowledgeable doctor.

    Good, good luck goes with you,
    Hopeful4

    they say immediate aggressive treatment is necessary if you have it again... not sure that you will always test positive for it once it is in remission, I don't think that's what I read but not sure if they know for sure anyway.

    did you save the tick? Some states have testing available for the ticks.

    keep us posted!
