I just got diagnosed, although the titer hasn't come back yet, with Lyme Disease. I have the classic bulls eye rash that looks textbook, on my upper back. Muscle achiness, headaches, and fatigue. I was started on Doxicycline yesterday. When I read about everyone's symptoms, I don't see anyone saying that their's itched. Mine itches - not bad like poison ivy, but it definetly is itchy. It aslo tingles in the middle. Did anyone else also have these symptoms? How soon after taking the meds do you start feeling better?

Hi Carol and welcome.

I'm sorry to hear about the rash and that you don't feel well, but I am glad you found this site.

A bulls-eye rash is a definite sign of Lyme. Sounds like you caught it early which is awesome!

I had a rash but it was not a bulls-eye. Mine was oval, very red and VERY ITCHY! Oh boy - it drove me crazy.

I am also on Doxycycline. I take 600mg per day. How much do you take?

Is your doctor an LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor)?

Were you tested for co-infections? Many people with Lyme also get an additional little present from the tick - a co-infection with another ailment.

I hope I answered your question. Peace and health to you! :)
