It seems about time i got tested for Lyme, perhaps alongside tests for other co infections. I dont remember being bitten by a tick, but i did get bitten by a horse fly a few months before my serious relapse. Ive just read that other biting insects apart from ticks can transmit lyme and i live in south wlaes where there is a lot of it about. I know the NHS tests are not considered up to scratch, Dr Myhill who im going to see says no tests are good enough, but i really want to give testing a go, especially as there is such an overlap of symptoms. In fact the site where the bite was flared up with a hard itchy lump which took 18 months to go down, even now it flares up nearly 4 years on when im in a bad patch. I dont know if this is significant or not. So, where to get the testing done? what have others done who live in the u.k? I cant travel so have to have my blood drawn locally and send somewhere. Any advice greatly appreciated, Justyx.
