so you got it from a fly why didnt you say so
ooh whats this google says
"Nevertheless, on the basis of the jogger's experience, Luger concluded that Lyme disease "may rarely be transmitted by biting flies," he said in a letter published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
But Lyme disease expert Andrew Spielman of the Harvard University School of Public Health in Boston challenged the report.
"It may not be impossible, but it comes as close to being impossible as anything I've heard," said Spielman, who discovered that the disease is transmitted by ticks that feed on mice and white-tailed deer.
Luger's letter "doesn't convince me at all that there is anything but ticks that people ought to be paying attention to," he said.
Research has shown that ticks generally need to be attached to a person for more than a day to transmit the disease, Spielman said. A fly bite occurs in "just a few seconds," he said.
The jogger more likely was infected through an unnoticed tick bite, Spielman said. It may also be possible that the fly bite triggered a reaction by the jogger's immune system linked to a previous episode of Lyme disease, he said."
and why didnt you say that your rash appeared after ten days and was actually the disseminated infection where
" Rash. Several areas of the skin (not where the tick bite occurred) may develop a rash similar to erythema migrans (described above). These 'secondary' rashes tend to be smaller than the original stage one rash. These tend to fade within 3-4 weeks. hmm didnt you say three to four days for yours.
so after visiting the drs three times, googling extensively the symptoms of lymes disease in between, you managed to convince the third doctor who wasnt just trying to get rid of you due to the amount of time you was taking up in surgery, that you had lymes disease.
I hope you get well sooon by the way and good luck in the lottery
