ok. would love some help here.

i went to a festival this past weekend. sleeping in a tent in some very painful positions. i came home feeling quite sore.

the next day i find a huge rash all down my arms. i then checked my back and chest to find more rash there. it also feels like my chest is really tight. im almost short of breath at times. and to top it all off i have an almost constant minor headache and a high temprature.

docters have given me antibiotics and a cream for the rash. (i have now learned the rash is septic)

what nobody seems to be able to work out is how these symptoms are all connected...any ideas?

  • Check out www.lymenet.org. Its possible you got a tick bite.Ticks can carry more than Lyme Disease. I suspect thats why abx was given.Have the drs give you a Western Blot test in a few days. The axb should help in giving a more positive test. ~~JerseyLymie
