Lyme disease is infamous for being incredibly hard to diagnose. Its varied symptoms are often confused with other diseases like Fibromyalgia, MS, Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Parkinson’s.
Sadly, this often means that people don’t immediately get the care they need and their symptoms worsen, which can often be quite painful.
What’s even worse, just about anyone can catch Lyme disease by simply going to a place where infected ticks may be present. This could be as adventurous hike through the woods, or a simple walk through the park. Scary, I know.
What You Need to Know About the Signs of Lyme Disease
Unfortunately, the ticks are quite small and often the bites are painless, so you might not even realize you’ve been bit. If you do find a tick on your skin, or if you feel unwell after being outside, you should see your doctor immediately.
The most common sign of Lyme disease is a “bull’s-eye” rash. This tends to appear roughly three months to one year after you’ve been bit, though it only appears in about half of all cases, and 70% of people never remember getting it.
What Else to Look For
Initially you might think that you just have the flu and feel tired, feverish, and achy, possibly with a sore throat or swollen lymph nodes. This will be followed by muscle and joint pain, which can be mild to severe. You might also feel numb or burning sensations, anxious, or depressed. Some people also experience short-term memory loss.
It’s important to note, however, that Lyme disease manifests itself differently in everyone. It doesn’t always follow the same progression and different people might experience none or all of these symptoms.
