A month after a rash appeared on both my arm and thigh in September I went to my doctors, and was referred to a dermatologist through private health cover. I was tested for Lyme among other things, and it came back positive. Researching Lyme disease I believe I’ve had it for over 25 years. All the symptoms were there, extreme tiredness, depression, anxiety, paranoia, a round rash on my stomach when I was at high school, diagnosed as shingles (I’m thinking it was the bullseye rash). I also suffer from neck pain and severe headaches, lower back pain, a strange sharp stinging sensation on the skin on the front of my nose, ghastly digestive problems, low pain threshold, etc. etc.
