Brief Answer:
Test suggest high resolution probability of Lyme disease

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible.

Based on the history you have shared, the tests suggest high probability of Lyme's disease and should be correlated clinically based on signs and symptoms as well as careful examination for any rash or other systemic infestation like neurological etc.

In any case, treatment with antibiotics like doxycycline for 3-4 weeks will be needed. Other antibiotics like azithromycin or amoxicillin can also work but doxycycline is generally preferred.

In severe forms of illness it may need intravenous antibiotics like ceftriaxone. Hope this has answered your query.

If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. Regards.
