    Tick season is well underway and the Bay Area Lyme Disease Foundation has provided helpful info on how to obtain free tick testing. Ticks pass a number of diseases in addition to Lyme and knowing a biting tick is infected can provide critical info, both for diagnostics and treatment of tickborne illness. Not only is it less expensive to test a tick, it’s also considered to be more accurate than blood testing.

    Maz, thank you so much for this information. I wish twelve years ago I would have tested my tick. You know, it’s funny…where that tick bit me on the right hip has funny feelings when I sit on it a certain way. I have to shift to lose that feeling. It is probably just a coincidence. I would have loved to have known more through testing.
