I recently discovered I had lyme disease (it's been exactly a week now). The doctors said that I caught lyme disease in its early stages. I had a huge bullseyes bite but now it's gone due to my antibiotics & probiotics. However, I felt terrible throughout the course of antibiotics; I kept wanting to throw up, felt dizzy, had fevers, numbness and pain in my joints, and tingly feeling in my fingers. Some days I felt that I got better, but then I saw another bullseyes bite on the opposite arm that I had one before. This time the tick bite was smaller than before. I just don't know if I'm getting better or not because smaller bullseye shape bites are appearing as I am still taking my antibiotics. A note to include is that, I haven't gone outside since I found out about my lyme disease. Please help!
Same here Doxy 200mg 2X day... just found out I tested positive.
From what I read I don't think it can be cured in a week. If the rashes come back it sounds like you may still have an active infection... should go back to your doctor.
I also vey much understand not wanting to "go outside".
Go forward day by day each day.
