My older daughter had all of those things as a normal part of childhood before she got Lymed except the small bumps thing...

Hi, You are your son's best advocate and you see your son daily, so I think it is always worthwhile to have all of your concerns addressed and all of your questions answered.
I have three children who have all recovered from Lyme and I have been to Dr. Jones' office many times.
In between visits, I communicate with him by typing a letter and faxing it to him. I describe all of my child's symptoms and any new issues and concerns.
This has worked well for us and in this way there is a written record of my concerns that might prove helpful later, if needed.
I think that if you just use the phone and talk to the office staff, that something could get lost in the translation, even though his staff is very competent and knowledgeable.
Usually the staff will give him the letter and then get his response and the staff will call you back with his answer. I don't think that it's too onerous for him and it basically comes with the territory of pediatrics.
