Symptoms Of Lyme Disease
Posted on May 01 2018
Because May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, we want to educate individuals about the dangers of ticks and the threat of this tick disease.
Lyme Disease is not an illness that should be shrugged off. This tick illness lasts for several months, even years, and leaves victims bed-ridden, sore, weak and unable to perform daily tasks they once were cable of doing themselves.
Lyme Disease is caused by a tick bite and can lead to infection in just 24 hours. It is spread from animal to animal or animal to human and affects more than 300,000 individuals each year including more than 100,000 dogs and cats.
Symptoms of Lyme Disease are often misdiagnosed as the flu and most individuals will experience a fever, headache, swollen glands, fatigue, and muscle aches. However, the biggest indicator of Lyme is a red, blotchy 'Bulls-eye' marking on the infected area.
Although Lyme Disease can be treated with prescribed medications, there is no cure for Lyme.
