Lyme is in other countries...several in europe. There are several people from other countries that have set up websites and blogs.
Thanks Rebeccah, think I'm gonna have to go back to doctors on Monday, so might mention it
don't forget about migrating birds. Under Your Skin shows the entire globe and tracks lyme disease. Rather dismaying to say the least. so Yes, I'd say it's gotten around.
I'm reading a book called "Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme epidemic" by Pamela Weintraub. EXCELLENT book. It discusses the European version of Lyme.
I went to the infectious disease doctor (I was concerned about Lyme after insects bites and multiple symptoms - but we tested neg on everything), and he told me that there are many other infections that can be transmitted by insects, not only lyme. You need to mention to the doctors which countries you visited and have them run all the test for all possible infectious diseases not just Lyme to be in the safe side.
