In brief: Maybe continue treat

There is controversy on the issue of when to stop treatment.
The international lyme and associated diseases society (ilads) has published treatment guidelines that recommend continued treatment until the patient is symptom free. This is something worth discussing with your doctor. Sometimes there is residual symptoms that are permanent, but usually all symptoms clear when infection is gone.

In brief: Lymes

You need to be completely rechecked as lyme sometimes reoccurs and needs more treatment.
