That is good that helped you. I dint think that will help me though and it can cause bad low bg.

So sorry to hear you contracted the disease. I’m paranoid about ticks. I rescued a dog that kept having ticks for about the first 4 months no matter what I did to abate them with medication and spraying the area. No one I spoke to that had a dog, or the vet, or the folks at Petco had seen an outbreak of ticks in our area (San Jose). My wife and I would feel a tick crawl on us while sleeping, so we had to stop letting the dog on the bed. Creepy, creepy feeling to have a tick crawling over you. Finally, after months of applying Advantix II, no more ticks on our doggie and she’s doing just fine (she was rescued as a stray and had quite a few ticks on her that I expected would be all gone with a few good washings and inspections by me). Again, so sorry to hear you are having such health problems.

Thanks Dave. I am going to an idf soon ,wonder what they will recommend. I cannot take the rec antibiotic so I’m not sure if I’m going to need treatment or not I took zithromax for a week maybe that just took care of it.

Just google it or read here. Someone said she had a bad low while high that took 80g or more to stop.
