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


What about people with no symptoms and no rash, but who went for a walk in a field, have read about Lymes disease and want to be tested because they believe they defiantly might have Lymes disease which you are defiantly probably going to miss because they have googled it and you are a stupid GP. What's the guidance on these people? I'm so glad NICE has issued guidance on this terrible condition the concern of which is absolutely rife amongst a sub group of worried dog walking googling, better educated than many, fairly well off concerned patients. Well over due. Thanks NICE.
