Ok, I admit I'm too lazy to read this whole thread to try to answer this...

But did Rick take antibiotics at some point? I have a hard time he didn't take at least 7 days, and more likely 21, of an appropriate antibiotic at some point since last summer. There's not really another treatment for Lyme disease. I understand the idea of treating the inflammatory aspect of Lyme with diet, but to do that without a course of appropriate antibiotics is, well, dumb.

To add, medicine gets complicated when conditions can’t be diagnosed via lab testing. I have a ton of symptoms but have never had an abnormal lab result.

From a diagnostic perspective, to not have a test that can provide meaningful data for diagnosis and treatment is pretty inexcusable. I’ll refrain from any religious commentary.

Serious:
This thread shows disc golfers are more than just pot smokin' hippies. Some smart people here.

Just like we shouldn't be making Ricky's decisions for him.
Ricky is not bound by anything anyone says in this thread and I bet he knows that.

to the best of my knowledge he has not seen a doctor or taken any medication to treat his symptoms

The interview with Terry Miller indicated that Wysocki had been taking an antibiotic for a different infection, at some point around the time he was bitten by a tick.

Does Rick have medical insurance? I don't know how the touring pro gig works so forgive my ignorance, but could he afford treatment for this if he wasn't covered?

It's a cheap generic antibiotic. I think you can get a weeks treatment for less than $15 without insurance.

Amoxicillin is super cheap and an appropriate treatment. Most providers use doxycycline because it covers some other tick-borne illnesses in case Lyme isn't the culprit (or only culprit).

My guess is that he got the antibiotics and is choosing to ignore that fact. Just a PSA for others: please get the antibiotics! (And a long enough course)

I feel bad for Rick. Making jokes about this is poor taste. We all most likely had run-ins with ticks.

Unfortunately it sounds like he is using "beliefs" to treat this instead of medical science.(if thats true)

Get well Rick. We need you so Paul doesnt have a monopoly on disc golf.
