The publication of the guide to the most common Lyme disease symptoms details the early signs of the tick-borne infection and how, if left untreated, these can progress to cause a range of chronic symptoms that have a detrimental effect on an individual’s health and wellbeing.
Early stages of Lyme disease usually include a noticeable, bulls-eye-shaped rash that spreads from the tick bite site and can appear between three and 30 days after the bite. Lyme disease patients may also experience fevers, chills, headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, joint aches, and swollen lymph nodes.
As the condition progresses, symptoms may include joint swelling and arthritis. It’s also not uncommon to experience intermittent muscle and tendon pain, heart palpitations, dizziness, and shortness of breath. More chronic symptoms of Lyme disease include extreme fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain, nerve pain, mental fog, depression, and anxiety.
More than 300,000 Americans are diagnosed and treated for Lyme disease every year. Yet, despite the prevalence and severity of the condition, Lyme disease is commonly misdiagnosed as other conditions. These conditions include things like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and psychiatric disorders.
A spokesperson for Premier Health and Holistic Medicine said, “When patients look for answers about the treatment of Lyme disease, it’s a bit like going on a wild goose hunt. We recommend long-term treatments for Lyme disease, which take into account the individual needs of each patient. These evidence-based treatments include things like diet, supplements, bioidentical hormones, herbal therapies, and even antibiotics. It’s the first step to healing your body and starting the journey back towards wellbeing.”
Premier Health and Holistic Medicine is a healing-oriented practice founded by Dr. Robin Ann Ridinger, a board-certified family physician with over 25 years of experience in family medicine.
