I am now on 3 weeks of anti-biotics for it which make me feel super sick. I am still working and still training. I'm hoping the side effects go away sooner than later so I will feel refreshed and ready to go come Marathon Day (1 month from tomorrow!!!). The Dr said it can take several weeks to several months for the symptoms to be gone... I'm hoping for weeks, or even days? I was glad to hear there was something going on and it wasn't me just being out of shape or something!
Anyway, I wanted to put my story out there, maybe I can help a fellow runner or friend who somewhere down the road develops these symptoms. Lyme disease is hard to test for so it's good to know the symptoms so you can get the treatment. The bulls eye ring they look for only shows up in 70% of cases, and doesn't appear on a larger scale until the disease starts progressing. Once it hits your nervous system (around 2 months) it can cause irreversible damage and permanent arthritis in your joints.
