I am wondering about the number of folks diagnosed who did not have the "bullet rash". I have had a very high fever for the past 2 days (103.5), and some joint pain, particularly in my knees and neck. No other symptoms ~ no nausea or runs, no respiratory problems, nothing. I went to the walk-in clinic this morning and asked the Dr. for the blood test for Lyme Disease. He agreed to it but said that it was unlikely because I didn't have the rash. I've known several people who were diagnosed who did not have a rash. He explained that the test gives many false positives. Hmm.....have you heard this before? He had the nurse draw a lot of blood and is having it tested for Mono and a few other things. Anyone ever have a high fever with no other symptoms?
