Lyme disease can cause virtually any symptom in the world. Early Lyme tends to cause non-specific flu-like symptoms & a rash. Then it tends to cause joint pains (esp. knee pain) & fatigue. It often causes problems with memory & concentration & a variety of neurological symptoms. As it progresses it may be misdiagnosed as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, multiple sclerosis etc.
Lyme disease goes beyond bull’s-eye rashes and flu-like symptoms. This bacterial infection, spread by ticks, can affect every system in the body. Talk to your doctor if you suspect you’ve had a tick bite and have these symptoms.
"Lyme Disease for me it's chronic I have been dealing with these things on and off since I was 13 and I just turned 30. There are not enough antibiotics in the world to make me better. What makes things worse is not many people understand Lyme and think that it's gone after 3 weeks of treatment. Well it's not if it's not caught soon enough."
