Are these possible Symptoms of Lyme Disease? Does anyone know a Doctor in Southern CA that specializes in Lyme Disease?

Here is a history for my last 6 months.

November 4, 2006 - November 12, 2006
Vacation in Maui Hawaii
November 5 - When to Twin Falls in Maui and went into Water.
November 5 - 9 - Got Insect bite spots on Legs and Lower Arms. Normal Bites that Itch. Used Cortizoine to prevent

After November 12 - All bite marks gone within a day or so.

No episode till around November 17 or so. Bite mark in one area on Lower Right Arm came back. It was a red rash
around a previous bite that had gone away.

When to Doctor and he said that it was probably some leftover poison from the Insect bite that surfaced again.
Gave me a prescription for a ointment to put on the rash - HC VALERATE CRE 0.2%

Mark went away after a few days.

Was sick a few days in between here with Fever or Strep Throat.

No Episode until May 26, 2007 where a bunch of red spots appeared on my upper right arm bicep.
Started out light pink colored (No Itching). Got Darker as days went on.

May 28, 2007 Arm started getting numb sensation (Hold Cold) and was having muscle pain on Bicep and Shoulder.

Went to doctor on May 29, 2007.
Doctor felt for bumps on skins marks but nothing. Checked Lymphe Nodes under right arm and they were swollen.
He felt it was a skin Infection and gave me Cephalexin but told me to use only if it got worse.
Did not want to take also since Cephalexin is a child of Penecillian which I am allergic to.

Did not take the Antibiotics and after 3 days all marks were gone.

June 14, 2007 - Right arm had light pink rash mark in a circular pattern (Lots of little pink dots) in the morning.

Similar location on the Biceps but a little lower.
By around Noon the rash was gone but the Right arm started feeling a little numb.

June 15, 2007 - Right Arm now having same problem as before. Shoulder hurting.

June 16, 2007 - Now my left arm is hurting in a similar way but no visible marks.
By Noon Time, feeling very Weak and could not sleep either. Felt tired but could not sleep.
Took 2 Tynelol.
By Evening - Was not so weak but arms still hurting.

June 17, 2007 - Arms still swore (Dull pain is pressed) but fine otherwise.

June 18, 2007 - Went to Doctor to check it out.
Doctor said Seems like infection and lymphe nodes swollen under arms.
Told me to take Blood Test - Pending Results.
Gave me a prescription for Doxycycline (After telling her I was allergic to Penecillian).
100mg / 2 times a day for 10 days
Started Prescription on Monday Morning.
Started getting on and off Fever by Noon. (Slight Temperature)

June 19, 2007
Continued Medication
Seemed to have Constipation but not sure if that was due to now food. Drank a home remeby drink that cycles the

stomach. Worked.
Arms no longer hurting.
Stomach started hurting very slightly (Dull pain in Lower Abdomen Area) when I walk or twist in a specfic

direction. Talked to Pharmasist and said it might be part of Side Effect from the Antibiotic so should be ok

unless it gets worse.
Also, noticed browns circles of spots random sizes forming all over body. This has been happending for awhile but

didnt take notice of it. They dont hurt or anything.

Right Hip Skin feeling little sore. No marks.
Talked to a family friend (Chiropracter - Dr. Douglas Eglaus) and explained to call Hawaii Health.
Talked to Hawaii Health and 2 types of reports:
Murine Typhus
Explained those to areas to Dr. Douglas

June 20, 2007
Continued Medication
Right Hip Skin still feeling little sore.
No Fever
Talked to Dr. Douglas and he thinks it might be Spirochete Infection.
Based on his diagnosis, he asked if I have any large skin marks on stomach.
I said yes, I did get a red mark that turned brown on stomach about 4-5 inches wide which matched his diagnosis.
He said I was on the right track and the Medication I am taking is correct.
