Well, I'll have to wait 24 hrs more, can't get in until tomorrow 8am, sun shining, calm air, kind of makes you feel better too.
One of my best friends dad in 2010 checked out in the same fashion, waited til his wife was out, went down behind the barn, right behind his tractor a 2020jd, some suspicion about anti depressant meds by the oldest brother, middle one found him shortly after.
I might be jumping the gun on Lyme, but like you say the diagnosis, testing and follow up treatment does not seem to be an exact science.
The symptoms appear similar, and I sure as heck know not to play around with doctors with this, you need one that is Lyme literate. I've found that one has to be very careful with medical professionals, my father has had a rough time the last few years, only within the last year since switching doctors, to one that had a real interest in helping him, getting to the root of the problem, he just had a minor surgery that resolved something that was likely the cause, he was darned close to succumbing to complications caused by a a long standing infection in his sinus cavities, was triggering asthma, which played heck with his heart rhythm, BP etc. If he continued with the same regimen it would have no doubt got the best of him, I saw it with my farmer friend while he was hospitalized, doctor on the hospital floor disagreed with the large dosages and medication prescribed by the previous doctor, I was sitting right there, he's a good friend, doctor said everything in laymans terms, but in summary, this change and his follow up to continue healing saved his life, and though he downsized the ag work to just hay, mostly round bales, he can still work, what he was facing was the end of all of it and very possibly himself. A person really has to be proactive with these medical professionals, as it seems they do more of prescribing medications vs being a physician, and the 2 cases I mention above were cut and dry after changes were made, had both continued, they'd not be here, I guess its like the difference between a mechanic and parts replacer LOL !
