Go to ER: If you need to contact your doctor immediately or go to an ER to get checked since there is an early window during which Lyme disease can be effectively treated. The approach is usually treat as Lyme Disease while waiting confirmation with blood test Do not delay.

See a doctor: Any doctor should be able to order the blood test for Lyme confirmation. This is a clinical diagnosis, however - so even without a blood test, you should be able to be diagnosed and planned for treatment. Lyme is curable - you just need to get started on the right pathway. Hope this helps.
