OH NOOOOO!!!! My first exposure to ticks was about 200 of those boogers on my legs!

Keep taking the doxy for awhile.

Absolutely. I didn’t have that opportunity back in 1958 since no one knew that ticks caused Lyme disease.

I’m taking doxy. I feel better when I take it and I can feel it wear off. The stiff neck fatigue and other joint pains come back when it wears off. I don’t remember my original Lyme symptoms responding so quickly and clearly to meds.

The quick response may be due to the fact that in past years you were chronically ill with Lyme. Now it's an acute infection.

Hopefully it will keep you from becoming chronic this time!
