Lyme Disease Symptoms

Lyme disease is a bacteria caused illness that is transmitted by certain kinds of ticks that pick up the bacteria when they feed off of deer or mice. Lyme disease is named after the city of Old Lyme, Connecticut. You can become infected with Lyme disease if you are bit by one of these ticks that have been infected. There are several tell tale Lyme disease symptoms that show up if you have been infected with Lyme disease.

It's important to realize that just because you get infected with the bacteria doesn't mean that you will get sick. Lyme disease may not take hold in your body. Some of the first Lyme disease symptoms to look out for are a headache, chills, muscle pain, fever and a general feeling of lethargy or laziness. You will feel very drained and feel like you have no energy.

There are other telltale Lyme disease symptoms. While it doesn't occur in all cases, it's one that appears in a significant number and that is the bulls-eye rash. It's a red rash that is 1 to 3 inches wide with a clear center area. It resembles a bulls-eye, hence the name, the bulls-eye rash.

If you experience any of these symptoms, you should visit a doctor for medical treatment as soon as possible. If you have recently been bitten by a tick, you need to let your doctor know this so that he can purposely look for Lyme disease symptoms.

You can overcome your Lyme disease symptoms with proper care, but you do need to seek proper care as soon as you notice any of these symptoms of Lyme disease. Your doctor can make sure that you can overcome Lyme disease and get on with your life and avoid the complications of Lyme disease.
