Brief Answer:
Please see the detailed answer below.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

Please could you explain me your recent symptoms.

Based on your history I think you should know that
rocky mountain spotted fever does not result in chronic or persistent infections and the best treatment for the acute RMSF is doxycyclin.
But some patients who recover from acute severe RMSF may have permanent damage, like amputation of arms, legs, fingers, or toes (from damage to blood vessels in these areas), hearing loss,paralysis; or mental disability.
In this situation I suggest to meet an Infectious Diseases Specialist in your area .

I hope my answer helps you.
