    My tournament partner found a tick on him. It was embedded abnd dead. It became infected so he went to the doctor. The Dr. said it looked like Lyme disease. They sent bllod work off to the Mayo Clinic to test.
    Has anyone ever had Lyme Disease?

    Yes and it can be treated, but he will test positive for this point on. Left untreated it is some very nasty stuff.

    I was diagnosed with it several years ago. It can be treated with anti-biotics...
