Packed a can of deep woods bug spray for the turkey trip this weekend. Also treat the yard with sevin granules to help keep ticks and spiders away from the house. I'm not a bug fan.

The Missouri version is called Borreliosis. Most doctors are correct as the Lyme's disease comes from CT. The bugger has mutated and taken on several different variations.

Dr. Charles Crist Specializes in tick born illness and is who I would strongly recommend to anyone who cannot figure out what is wrong. Most Doctors look for the worst case scenario and don't think a little tick will cause all these problem. He saved my life when no one else would listen.

While in Kansas I checked each night and found one or two every time. Got home and wife pulled one off my back. I go to the dermatologist once a year, cause my wife makes me....

My buddy got Lyme disease back n the 1980's, took several years for doctors to find out what was wrong as it was pretty rare back then.. He had and still has a lot of joint pains, even gave up shooting a recurve and now shoots a compound. But he still kills turkeys and catches fish in the same day.

I feel like i have most of those symptoms all the time
I need to use the deet and permethrin more diligently, I don't get bit very often so I tend to blow it off. Hope you get better Ape.

I just had my wife remove one of those little seed ticks from my back yesterday. They are so small they look like a freckle until they start itching. They are also the hardest to get out.

I went through a sick spell last spring and ended up on anti biotics and steroids for a while. I swore it was lyme. Last Aug I developed some irregular heart rythym and was tired a lot. I had the tic panel and they didn't find lyme but said I had inactive rocky mountain in my blood. I'm very careful these days.

2 years ago a friend of mine was diagnosed with Lyme disease very long after the tick bite.
He has lost his job, and can no longer work. Has a hard time walking. Had to sell his house and down size.
Firm believer in the permethrin and Deet..
