Thanks for the advice. Would it be worth seeing another doctor to try to get a "supplemental" prescription for antibiotics, since he only gave me Ceftin for 10 days (IDSA recommends 2-3 weeks for Ceftin/cefuroxime axetil here:)

Early Lyme Disease

Erythema migrans. Doxycycline (100 mg twice per day), amoxicillin (500 mg 3 times per day), or cefuroxime axetil (500 mg twice per day) for 14 days (range, 1021 days for doxycycline and [U]1421 days for amoxicillin or cefuroxime axetil)[/U] is recommended for the treatment of adult patients with early localized or early disseminated Lyme disease associated with erythema migrans,

Also he only ordered tests for Lyme disease. Should I be worried that he didn't order tests for any other diseases that Tinuviel mentioned?

Thanks again for the advice.
