    Interesting. There are also other strains of Rickettsia found in other countries (I remember one was found in South Africa). I was tested for the one above and was negative (I have been bitten by ticks) but I also lived in South Africa. More to learn!

    For me it explains a lot. This stuff needs to be taken seriously especially for those testing negative for Lyme. Co-infections might be the answer for many. No stone should remain unturned.
