More work up: You are 22 years old. Female. You note body swelling on 1/2. Sed rate elevated and you have weakness or tired. You may need more work up. The sed rate is non specific. If you do not feel better ask your doctor to do a lyme titer and cbc. For your own homework talk to parents see if any new bites this summer, did you have rashes etc. Hope you feel better.
