Thread: Lyme Disease Fact Document

  1. #1

    Lyme Disease Fact Document

    I've scanned a six page document entitled 'Lyme Disease' which was prepared by Sue O'Connell the then head of the Lyme Borreliosis Unit at Southampton General Hospital.

    I found it very informative. I think I got it about 7 years ago.

    I tried to scan it into one document and failed!

    Interesting document.

    Ticks with Lyme disease have (apparently) been recently discovered in Lincolnshire, specifically around the parks of Lincoln, so it would seem its becoming more common?

    I was bitten by my first tick in France in May and am still suffering from the complications of the bite itself and was in the hospital yesterday to get it looked at by a skin specialist, they are removing the bite area in 4 weeks. It appears like a spot/lump similar to a fly bite, and periodically flares up and itches. Could be coincidence and be something else but I did not show any other symptoms and they don't suspect anything other than maybe a bit of the tick left in, or coincidence and its a mole or something random.

    I have converted these images into a pdf file, but the file size exceeds the forums max size for upload.

    If anybody wants a pdf cop I could email it?

    Probably mouth parts of tick left in, had this a few times but even when I get them out completely I get a spot that itches and bleeds for a week or two, my arms are covered in white patches where I have been bitten seems to destroy the pigment in the area of the bite.

    Pay attention Gentlemen to these documents. I got Lymes in 2010, I had two years out on strong antibiotics, I now get arthritis in my hands and certainly don't have the energy and drive that I used to. And what is a snivel for most turns into man flu. And I was quickly diagnosed and treated by professors at the western general in Edinburgh who are leading a lot of the research into it.
