What is Lyme Disease ??
The best way to define what is Lyme Disease is “It’s an contamination caused by being bitten by an infected tick”. The infected tick comes in the category of Borrelia type bacteria.
Lyme is also called “Imitator” because its symptoms shadow many other diseases. It can affect any organ of the body, including the nervous system and brain, heart, muscles and joints.
The Centers for Diseases Control and prevention provide evaluation of 300,000+ people every year are diagnosed with Lyme disease in the US.
Lyme disease affects people of all ages. The CDC notes that it is most common in children, older adults, and others such as farmars and field petrol persons who spend time in outdoor activities and have higher risk to ticks.

Symptoms of early Lyme disease may present as a flu-like diseases (Can be fever, chills, sweats, muscle aches, fatigue, nausea and joint pain).
Some patients have a hasty rash or Bell’s palsy. However, although a rash shaped like a bull’s-eye is considered signs of Lyme disease, many people develop a different kind of Lyme rash or none at all.
Estimates of patients who develop a Lyme rash vary widely, ranging from about 30% to 80%.
Many Lyme symptoms, such as fatigue, cognitive breakage, joint pain, poor sleep, mood problems, muscle pain, and neurological appearance also occur in other diseases. Hence, the symptoms of Lyme disease far overlap those of never-ending fatigue, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, depression and Alzheimer’s disease.
Many Lyme patients report being mistreated with a different condition before being properly identified with Lyme disease. If you develop a rash, click a picture of it and see a doctor as soon as possible.
