Yes, you should ask your doctor, but I will tell you what I know and yes I had/have lyme disease. Lyme disease, technically, never goes away and it will always be in your system. Some people, it will never bother them ever again, but there are some that will have chronic issues from time to time for their life. Those issues can be minor or major. My one friend has to get an injection once a year due to back pain caused from it. Me, on the other hand, tend to get very minor joint irritations from it. Good luck and take care, but as woods walker stated, I will schedule a follow up with your family doctor.
