This Lyme stuff is confusing. I have tested a number of time for both Ehrlichia and Lyme. Ehrlichia comes back strong positive every time. But with Lyme I would get some test positive and others not, and even though those that were positive, the Dr would say they are not positive enough even though the lab marked it as High. So what is the ultimate authority on this? How can a test be 'not enough positive'? I figured someone here must know since there seem to be so many Lyme victims. I do not want to add another disease to my list, and Lyme would be sth I definitely would like to avoid at any cost. Unfortunately all I have to do is step outside. There are deer in my back yard every day and my dad caught Lyme working in my yard twice already. He did however get very ill rather quickly and did get the bulls eye rush so he was treated immediately. I have never seen his as sick as he was then. One thing he told me though is that now he understands how I must feel. Luckily he seem to have recovered even though I do think he is suffering some residual effects.
