After 20 years of illness which has always been diagnosed as ME/CFS, I had a test done recently which indicates I probably do have lyme disease. My illness started about 6 weeks after I was accidentally submerged in the dirty water of a harbor full of fishing boats and yachts. Is it likely that I could have picked up lyme from that source?
I don’t know about that. The organisms, unless encysted, are confined to living organisms usually and I am not sure how you would have picked up an encysted form that way.
