Lyme disease is an illness that’s caused by bacteria carried by infected ticks. If you’ve been bitten by a tick and show any of the early symptoms of Lyme disease, you should see your doctor. Lyme disease has three stages: Early localized Early disseminated Late Early-localized stage Lyme disease Typically, a large, raised, red spot (erythema migrans) appears at the site of the bite, usually on the thigh, buttock, or trunk or in the armpit. The spot usually disappears after about 3 to 4 weeks. About 25% of infected people never develop—or at least never notice—the characteristic red spot. Early-disseminated stage Lyme disease This stage begins when the bacteria spread through the body. Fatigue, chills, fever, headaches, stiff neck, muscle aches, and painful, swollen joints are common. In nearly half of people who are not treated, more, usually smaller erythema migrans spots appear on other parts of the body.People have a backache, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, and an enlarged spleen. The nervous system is affected in about 15% of people. Common problems are meningitis and Bell palsy. About 8% of infected people have irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias) and inflammation of heart tissue (myocarditis) and the sac around the heart (pericarditis) with chest pain. Irregular heartbeats may cause palpitations, light-headedness, or fainting. Late stage Lyme disease If the initial infection is untreated, other problems develop months to years later. Arthritis develops in more than half of people, usually within several months. Swelling and pain typically recur in a few large joints, especially the knee, for several years. Cysts may develop and rupture behind the knees, suddenly increasing the pain. A few people develop abnormalities related to brain and nerve malfunction. Mood, speech, memory, and sleep may be affected.

Yep. I had bullseyes all over my body, and my pediatrician refuses to believe it was lyme. She thought the rash only occurred at the site of the bite. I never even knew I was bitten. My first titer was negative. It took over a month to get diagnosed, and get that 21 days of Doxycycline. I suffer from symptoms still, and it has been many rounds of antibiotics, and 12 years since the initial onset. Maybe “chronic Lyme” doesn’t exist, but something is not right. Being told “no, you were cured” when you know that couldn’t possibly be true is the most frustrating thing ever. You feel very defeated.

bububaba says:

Omg!! I think i have lyme disease!!! Becaise i have all those symptoms and i just ignore it. I thought i was just tired and my diet is not healthy.

Caroline Begala says:

I got Lyme disease and I had stiff neck and all that and when I got diagnosed and started treatment I noticed how my right side of my face wasn't exactly working right and I had Bell's palsy from nerve damage but recently it's almost back to normal and I'm almost done with the antibiotics

Sandro Manzon says:

for me, it ruined my eyes. All these other symptoms are treatable, but I have so many damn floaters and blurred vision in both my eyes, I can hardly go outside, it's an epic disaster and it's more or less irreversible… It happened at 24 yrs and I'm 26 now… Lyme is a disease from hell, esp if it's paired with co infections. If you have lyme, Godspeed.
