HI , Im new to the forum. Im looking for information on how to tell when you go from acute bite to knowing when Lyme is present. My dr has place me on 6 weeks of doxcycline post bite and now waiting 4 weeks before i can have Lyme testing done. I seem to have a slight tingling here and there on my arms/head/legs. Slight joint paints in my fingers and wrists and ankles and knees. Twitching muscles here and there on legs./arms/head.Fair no of bruising whilst on the doxcycline on my legs, wrist and even finger.Slight night sweat but had some prior to bite anyway but seem more regularly since bite. Maybe slight ache on soles or a cramp feet feeling? People report pain when they have Lyme ; and aches on their soles when they have Bartonella. Are these aches immediately full intensity when people first get them or gradually increase in intensity until they become more noticeable and then painful with increase duration from the original tick bite? Essentially how soon did people get symptoms out there and knew they had lyme if they didnt have the classic bullrash to signify it. How soon does something show up in the blood tests?
