Brenda loves getting outside to work in her garden, play with her dog, or enjoy a hike in the woods. She’s well aware that Lyme Disease is a growing threat to people like her who enjoy outside activities. If you’re like Brenda, here are some of the key things you need to know about Lyme Disease.
How do you catch Lyme Disease?
Ticks carry many diseases, but one of the most common, and potentially dangerous, is Lyme Disease. This tick-borne illness is caused by the bacterium Borellia burgdorferi, and is passed to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks.
What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease?
The classic identifying symptom of Lyme Disease is a bulls-eye shaped rash, although the shape and type of rash can vary. And in some cases it doesn’t show up at all.
If you have been bitten, or think you’ve been bitten by a tick, keep watch for these additional symptoms:
- Muscle and joint pain
- Swollen lymph nodes
Your doctor can run tests to confirm that you’ve been exposed to Lyme Disease.
How is Lyme Disease treated?
Fortunately, Lyme Disease can be treated very effectively if it’s caught early. A course of antibiotics, prescribed by your doctor will usually prevent any serious manifestation of the disease. Early treatment is key, so don’t hesitate to see your doctor if you think you’ve been exposed.
What are some of the long-term effects of Lyme Disease?
Unfortunately, even with early treatment, some patients can suffer lingering effects from exposure to Lyme Disease. Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS) can persist for 6 months or longer in some patients. Typical symptoms include fatigue and particularly chronic joint pain.
