I've had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 7 years. It began with a severe flu-like illness 2 weeks after a vacation in July in the woods in upstate NY. All of us would find tiny ticks on us after our daily hikes. I was tested for Lyme about 2 months after that vacation and the result was negative. I was tested again about 4 years into my illness and it was also negative. I think I should pursue treatment for Lyme regardless of the test results. Has anyone else had a similar experience (years before diagnosis/treatment)? How did you choose a Dr.? I live in Florida and there are no Lyme experts here. Any advice is appreciated!
