Has anyone ever contracted Lyme disease? If so, what were your symptoms, when was it discovered, and what type of treatment did you undergo?
Thanks for the info...

I've never had it, but one of my good friends has, and has struggled with the symptoms for a long time. I'll see if she can describe her experiances.

I've had Lyme desease. The only sign/simptom I had was erithema migrans of about 10cm in diameter on my left hip. I haven't noticed any tick on my body before and yet that is the only way I could get Borelia Burgdoferi. I took amoxicilin+clavulanate for 2 weeks and that's all.

thanks, Hajderman, and WELCOME!! I appreciate your input. So basically, you found it very early, and they treated it with antibiotics, and you had no other sypmtoms, right?

dave, i'm still interested in hearing what happened with your firend.

thanks again, guys!

Dave,
thanks so much for that link. Does your friend have an e-mail address? I'd like to get some more information from her. You can PM me with that, if you'd prefer. Or, ask her to check out the site... ;)

Really, the article was very informative, and I appreciate your time!
