Out of the Blue

I want to thank Brian, a user who registered an account here yesterday to suggest I get myself tested for Lyme disease, as the symptoms I describe fit that pretty well. Recalling Hudson the wonder dog's bouts with Lyme remind me that her limping was the first symptom we noticed, so my achy joints fit that aspect of it too well. I'll call the doctor today, and hopefully they can get me in pretty quickly for a blood test and/or examination. This will be unusual for me, as I am not someone who is prone to visiting the doctor when I'm not feeling well. I think the last time I was at the doctor outside of a checkup was when I had knee surgery, and the last time I went to the doctor because I was feeling ill was when I had the chicken pox as a little boy.

Yeah, I see no rash, but I have had the fever, chills, headache, fatigue, and muscle and joint aches. Probably nothing, but better safe than sorry.

The problem is that not all the signs can be an indicator. You can have lyme disease for years before anything even begins to show up, the whole "it doesn't show up for a long time after" is very similar to the whole chickenpox/shingles response. Get the first in childhood, get the latter when you're old.
