    "The 30-year-old daughter of American designer Tommy Hilfiger said she was often left sitting in the bathtub for hours or walking with a cane. She also had flu-like symptoms and trouble sleeping.
    She went to several doctors, who diagnosed her with everything from arthritis to growing pains. Subsequent tests for Lyme disease came back with a "borderline positive," she said".

    Thanks @RL_sparky. Another strong witness. 2-4 weeks of Doxycycline don´t always cure as many doctors claim. Good to read that it is possible to recover from the severe symptoms that she had.

    amazing to hear she at least recovered after having it for so long, and with such severe symptoms. During setbacks like the one I have right now, it makes you start to worry about getting fully well again.
