Please help. My wife was in Newark in September and got bitten - we don't know if it was a tick as it was not seen on her. The bite seemed to get infected although as we live in England and did not know about Lymes we paid little attention to it. About 10 days later my wife became extremely ill, constant vomiting, severe muscle and joint pain, swollen and tingling (and itching pain) on her hands, blinding headaches, visual disturbances. She was eventually admitted into hospital with viral mengingitis. 4 days later (and no treatment given) she was out of hospital and seemed to be recovering. It took a further month to get over the extreme fatigue she was feeling - but no-one here would take Lymes seriously as a possible cause - it was too rare they kept saying. Then earlier this month it all came back only worse - more vomiting, muscle and joint aches - and meningitis. Still the doctors will not consider Lymes saying it is very rare. Everything I read has all of her symptoms and I am worried that the longer this goes on without appropriate treatment the worse she will become. She is still in hospital now - is still suffering terrible headaches (she was given morphine last night for one!), her knee is really painful and she seems to have a swollen liver. To me it all points to lymes - does anyone else agree or am I going mad....please help.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
