My husband had RMSF in April 09 we did not know that and he went two weeks i rushed him to the hospital and he was A Fib they had to treat him for his heart they told me he was having a heart attack which i knew he already had tacacadia but they told me had i waited 24 more hours he would not be here today. does anyone have memory loss and Tremors in their hands and feet? We live near a hospital that is not worth a crap i had to make them do all the test on him and they kept telling me different stuff every time a nurse would come in one would say his kidneys are failing and one would asy his liver is failing and just on and on so i became a ****h and let them know they were stupid he had fever that was so high it would not resgister they put him on 5 different antibotics at one time his chills were so bad it make his heart look like he was in heart failure then the dumb dumbs figured out his chills were so hard they were getting to his heart causing his heart muscle to chill which in mimiced a heart attack he trying to get on disabilty, he can not go in the sun he gets real sick but we are trying to find out what the long term effects are and can't so if anyone knows please let us know ( magic200080@yahoo.com)

  • I think I can give encouragement to all those with RMSF.On Mothers Day, 2010 I had symptoms of flu with fever and joint pain. Went to my Dr the next day. He gave me antibiodics. The next thing I remember my pastor was beside my hospital bed. He said I had been in a comafor 3 weeks then skilled nursing for 2 weeks. I have no memories of it. The Dr in Tulsa, Ok. He had me on doxycycline by IV. They said I would have the symptoms of a slight stroke. I took physical therapy, speech therapy, had to relearn a lot of details. So there is a bright future if the Dr starts doxycline asap. My poor family stood by me and were very worried. But thank God--all is well now.
