General & Family Physician 's  Response

I am not sure if lyme disease can sustain this long fighting your body immunity and appearing after 17 long years. I am sure you should seek a local physician's opinion instead of trying over the counters any longer.

Some of the symptoms point towards lyme but very unlikely to remain dormant for so long.
