I had RMSF also, 3 years ago & 2 years ago. Yes, twice in two years. I am currently suffering anemia & nerve irritation. I'm lucky; my doctor does believe (and I do too) that that's the culprit. I'm 48 & reading your message is scary to me, that 25 years later you are still having problems. If you hear of a support group or something along those lines please let me know. In the meantime, best of luck.
