Cured of Lyme? Not. It was just diagnosed 4 weeks ago. It takes usually a year of antibiotics to get it under control.

The accurate diagnosis took about 15 years, though my first tick bite was actually 30 years ago. Symptoms first appeared 15 years ago.

I can't blame MDs for not getting it right. Lyme is a great imitator and deceiver. Blood tests are routinely wrong. Clinical diagnosis is more accurate, which includes a close look at:

History of tick exposure.
Symptoms.
Symptom patterns and clusters.
Ruling other possible alternative causes out.
Trial of Tetracycline to see what happens.

Unfortuneatly most doctors are not well schooled on Lyme. They have adopted the blood test as definitive, when even the Fed's Center For Disease Control says it is not intended for that purpose.
