A Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever anonymous support group with information on diagnosis, treatment, symptoms, along with personal stories and experiences with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. You're not alone.
I started getting really sick in the spring of 2009 and asked my doctor in May if he would test me for tick borne illnesses and he said no because I could not say that I had been bitten. I new about these diseases because of a dog rescue that I work with, Illinois Birddog...
I was VERY VERY sick for about 2 weeks in highschool and was hospitalised ala "House" with no clue what was wrong with me. Eventually figured out it was Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever from a tick that thought my armpit was tasty.
