Hello i removed a tick today after being outside...when i removed it, the tick didnt get off as easy and the head was still stuck. There was a small red ring around it but it didnt look like an EM rash i was putting tea trea oil on it.

I feel ver tired and i have headache... this is bad timing i was just starting a med for chlamydia and now im confused if these new symptoms are from the new tick bite or if its just from the other treatment.

I took 500 Zithromax and 1000 Omnicef. I also paniced. The last 10 years were hell. I feel traumatized from the last 8 months of mold/or not mold/mcs thing, sleeping outside in a tent and now this. I really dont know what to do. I feel hopeles and im afraid that i have new bugs now. I also have bad candida but what other choice do i have now?!

Indica440, I am very sorry this happened. Do you have a Lyme doctor?

Gosh, that sucks. I too got reinfected and acquired more infections than the first time around.

It's great that you're getting on top of this fast. I was seeing an alternative doctor at the time of reinfection and she refused to put me on antibiotics saying just because you have am EM rash, it doesn't mean Lyme (that got me into a HUGE mess that I now have to deal with).

My rashes never looked like a classic bulls-eye (but spread out very quickly), but they were diagnosed as EM rashes by a Lyme Literate doc.

I have a doctor but he has his "day off" and i cant reach him. Spoke on his mailbox. I was reading some PDFs about early lyme (last time i was bitten 10 years ago...) and it came down to Omnicef, Amoxicillin, Zithromax, Biaxan, Doxy.

Im really really against taking abx right now, because im on cowden and other herbals, also treated KPU. Last time ABX killed my gut. But what other choice do i have?! I was just crying all the trauma from this disease, not again, being bedbound, toxic for years, MCS from hell....

Hopefully you will hear from the doctor tomorrow.

I understand how upset you are, but knowledge is power. I bet you are much more knowledgeable now than before. You are addressing this right away, and it will make a difference.

Hang in there okay?

Very sorry to hear this, Indica. Maybe it will only take a few weeks on meds and then you'll be OK. It's possible.

Have you ever thought about getting a Rife machine?

I just pulled off my 3rd tick in one week - just now on the nape of my neck. Was sick for last 10 years and was getting better...Was holding steady on herbs and working on healing gut.

Back on doxy and other meds. I too have mold issues from my house.

The past week I have had wicked headaches, neck pain, eye pain, light sensitivity which I think are from the bites. As long as there are ticks this is always going to be an issue. I never let my guard down anymore. Not a good way to live.

Do whats best for you - sometimes that does mean abx.'s best wishes. DW

Thoughts I have for treating bites, these are just what I do, not medical advice, obviously:

Topical stuff, like tea tree, colloidal silver.

Heat may help locally -a heat pad on high pressed to the bite.

Internally colloidal silver, full dose six weeks.

The herbs you are using should help shouldn't they?

All the best.

Any chance you saved the tick and can send it in to get tested for lyme and co's? Maybe it didn't have them.

I'm sorry you are going through this!
