I am a 40 year old father of two young boys 9 and 6.I am constantly searching for answers regarding long term effects of RMSF.Like most of you on this forum, I visited my family physician numerous times before finally ending up in the hospital July 4th weekend last summer. After every test you can think of Stress test,ct scans,chest xrays and many visits to the lab and numerous doses of antibiotics, the only abnormalities was a positive reading of RMSF and Epstein Barr. My infectious disease physician insist that because of the levels of RMSF detected,that this could have happened when I was a kid. My IGM level was 4.5 and the IGG Levels was negative.Does anyone have any thoughts on this?I never recall developing a rash, the only thing I can remember is that my spouse pulled off a couple ticks after Youth Turkey season (April 08)that were embedded in my upper back and I havent felt right since.I constantly battle fatique,panic attacks,forgetfullness,joint pain,swelling in my fingers.I have always been a very active father,but these last 12 months have been a struggle.Any advice from anyone would be greatly appreciatedReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
