Hello, I am new to this site. My husband had an back injury over 18 months ago. About eight months ago the Workers comp sent him to a neurologist. The Neurologist did nerve conduction an other electrical test and it showed nerve damage due to the injury- but he stated that it also show axxon motor damage and radicuitis something unrelated to the injury- . he strongly urge Blood work to be done for an Autoimmune disease- but-WC would not do. He was leaning more toward Lupus, or Lyme. Well My husband finally got the blood work done . He was told two days ago that he tested postive for Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. the Doc called him out some Antibotic to take ten days.- Well the symptoms he has been having, memory loss, tiredness, joint paint stiffness, staring off,Blurry vison, as well as leg numbeness, has continued. In the heat and other times he even gets redness on his face.
My question? Can he still have Rocky Mountain fever -even though he don't recall having a fever ?. WOuld he still test postive several months later? Is Lymes close to the same test? I dont understand. thanks. He is so different!.
