GPs advised not to rule out Lyme disease despite lack of tick bite


Just to get this straight- people with flu like symptoms without ANY history suggestive of a tick bite should be considered for lyme disease. Is there another discriminator we can use or should ALL these patients be tested for lyme disease. If so is the lab aware of the MILLIONS of extra tests that will need processing, 1 or 2 per person per year.
