5. Go to the ER
It has a 30 day incubation period, so the sooner he starts on antibiotics the better. This is a terrible disease if not treated early, so your gut feeling is right. Do not wait, and if the ER will not treat, be aggressive and find someone who will. Its amazing that there are still a lot of docs who don't understand this disease.

(I know someone who didn't discover she had Lyme Disease till after she gave birth in her thirties, but she apparently contracted it as a teenager. She will always have it, and goes to NY for treatment.)
