Lyme disease is a serious and complex condition caused by Borrelia bacteria.
The disease itself is attained through a tick bite. Quickly after the inception of the infection, a series of symptoms will most likely occur between 3 to 30 days. These symptoms include (but are not limited to) an itchy rash that can be up to twelve inches across, fever, and severe joint pain. If treated quickly, the disease can be cured with relatively no complications. However, some people don’t develop symptoms from the infection, which contributes greatly to the severity of the disease in the long run.
More serious complications from Lyme Disease include memory loss, chronic fatigue, severe migraines, heart palpitations, and the most severe being neurological problems that are sometimes irreversible.
