Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi! For the last two years, I have been experiencing symptoms that match pretty much exactly with lyme disease. I have been tested for the autoimmune diseases that cause similar symptoms (Lupus, RA, etc.), and the tests have come back normal. So now I am considering lyme. I have pretty much all the symptoms, except I have do not remember flu or fever-like symptoms at the beginning. I did have a bite (thought it was a spider bite at the time, and still wonder if that's really all it was) that gave me a rash that looked exactly like the bulls eye rash, but as far as I can remember, there was no nausea, vomiting or fever (if there was, it was mild enough I forgot about it). The only person in my area who tests for Lyme is a naturopath, which means any appointments or blood tests will not be covered by Alberta Health Care, which means I have to pay for them. I don't want to do this if what I have is likely not lyme (I'm still a student, so I'm kind of poor, plus I've already spent buckets of money on physio etc.) I know I can't actually know unless I get tested, but I was wondering if it is possible to get Lyme disease without the flu-like symptoms or fever?
