    My son and sister both tested positive for lyme in this past week.

    They are both in the Military, my son in Nc, my sis in Va.

    Both of them were doing training missions at different places and both had to pull ticks off of them.

    My sons symptoms came about 3 weeks later, and my sisters about 1 week later.

    They are both on Doxy, my sis for 3 weeks, and my son for 6 weeks. My sister is starting to feel better, but not my son.

    The only difference in the two are that my sis has been able to take a couple of days off, and my son has not.

    I don't know that much about lyme, and I would appreciate any help you can give.
