What can we do for the chills? We have just returned from 3 weeks in Africa and have been on anti-malaria tablets and last week the Doctor said he ruled out malaria. Now we wonder if the chills and lack of energy could be due to a tick bite since he had Lymes disease a year ago with similar symptoms. No improvement in the week since we saw the doctor who is now gone for the week. What to do?
