Hi-I am 43 and in good health,low cholesterol,B/P,wt-140,5 ' 8"- I have 4 kids ,all healthy.
I had it just yesterday on my left side of my mouth.2 years ago I was bit by a tick and it possibly got some of it left in my scalp(had a tingling sensation for 2 weeks or so and was ready to see my Dr when it stopped )
last summer was bitten by deer ticks and had the classic bullseye rashes and took a weeks of Amoxicillin -500 mg tid.Got a positive IGM for lyme disease and rocky mountain spotted fever but unsure when I had it -the second test showed no increase.(no direct correlation although I was sick a month or two after the scalp tingling with a fever and vomiting and a sore breast and thought it was a breast infection that cleared up within a day or 2).
It has not happened today .Thanks .
