On pages 9-11 of the first link is the symptom checklist for tick-borne infections such as Borrelia (Lyme), Bartonella, Babesia, Ehrlichia, etc. (These infections can also be passed from mother to fetus, to infant through breastfeeding, and many believe they are also sexually transmitted.) Often many people in the same family are affected for a couple reasons...they live in the same tick-infested areas and the infections have been passed from generation to generation. Take a minute and go down the list and see how many symptoms you have. http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf There is also a good symptom list near the back of this informative booklet: http://www.lymepa.org/Basics2007v1.2Rev.pdf There have been an extraordinary amount of people from this board that finally discovered that they had some of these infections.
