Public service announcement... check for ticks!

Tomorrow, Lyme disease checkup. Whatever I've got, it sucks, and all the symptoms point towards Lyme. It means I miss probably a week or two of wrestling, possibly a bit of paintball, too, and more sleep than I can afford, being in college. Check yourselves for ticks, and "paintball welts" that grow.

But shouldn't this be in the GPD? Or even in the safety section?

And it seems I might not have Lyme after all... have the doctors stumped! I don't know if I should be proud or worried...

Again as long as it is treated in the earily stages you should be fine. Haha actually 2 days after being on the medication and still feeling a bit under the weather I ventured out to play paintball in the back woods! Don't let it deter you from playing, just take the necessary precausions.

Here's the site. Mine looks like the ones at the top.
The only downside is that I had some trouble scrubbing out some thick paint one time.

I'm now on a cyclene antibiotic, to clear up some symptoms, and any Lyme that might be present, while they run thyroid hormone, muscular enzyme, electrolyte, Lyme antibody, and a few other tests. Should fix things... I hope...
Now, if anyone here is actually a qualified medical professional, here's a set of symptoms: short-lived fevers, infrequent mild nausea, extreme stiffness along the spine (but I wrestle, so take that with a grain of salt), severe tension headaches, localized swelling/ irritation of the underarms, stiffness in the knees, and strangest of all, obscenely high blood pressure (146/90, then 138/82 the second time around, taken digitally).
