I got my results earlier than expected.

"I am writing to inform you that your tick has been processed by the Nieto lab. We tested your tick for Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi), relapsing fever (Borrelia miyamotoi), babesiosis (Babesia microti), and anaplasmosis (Anaplasma phagocytophilium). Your results are as follows:"
Number of ticks received: 1
Lyme: negative
Relapsing fever: negative
Babesiosis: negative
Anaplasmosis: negative

I am relieved at the results.

I do know that the test is not 100% and that it most certainly did not test for everything but it is still a relief. A load off my mind considering if it had come back positive for anything it would have stressed me out very badly.

still on doxy

I posted this as a new thread to ensure that those who asked about it would see it. Thanks

How long can you keep a tick before it is not able to be processed?

I also sent a tick to be tested and received the same exact results that you did....
