I got bit prob sometime in June. Had a swollen rash in the groin area, swollen lymph nodes and flu like symptoms. Went to the Doc on June 22, he put me on Doxy for 14 days. I felt better. Lyme test came back neg. Started feeling crappy in July. went back to the doc Aug 6 with arthritis type pain all over my body and could barely get out of bed. Doc put me back on doxy for 14 days. Retested for lyme and she did a sed rate. Lyme came back pos and sed rate was slightly elevated at 28.
Never really felt 100 % after bite. Now I have pain in my back, neck and hips, tired all the time and a dull headache that never goes away. I feel like crap. Went to the doc yesterday. Unbelievably he said he doesnt think its the lyme!!! Gave me muscle relaxants and moore blood work... a sed rate and a hla B27. They are not back yet. I feel like crap Ive been in bed all day. I took the muscle relaxant (Tizanidine)just knocked me out didnt help anything! Oh ya and he was nice enough to make an appointment with a Rhumatologist in OCT!!! Im so frustrated but when I call around to other docs they cant take me now either. any one have any suggestions??

Sure sounds like Lyme to me, but I'm not a doctor.
If I were you, I'd keep calling, even if you have to travel a long distance. Get evaluated by a LLMD (Lyme Literate MD). The amount of antibiotics that you were given is not sufficient if, in fact, you have Lyme. THIS IS ONLY MY OPINION.
