πŸ’š Lyme Awareness Day 5: Symptoms πŸ’š

Early symptoms of Lyme disease can include:

Rash (many times in the shape of a β€œbullseye”), Fever and flu-like symptoms Joint and muscle pain, Headaches, Fatigue, and malaise

Or NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL!

Many Lyme patients believe their Lyme remained dormant for years, after recalling a tick bite from years or even decades earlier.

Also, Lyme disease is frequently misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. Lyme disease attacks the weakest part in the body, making symptoms unique to each Lyme patient.

When this happens, it turns into Chronic Lyme disease (Which I will talk more about in a later video!)

Chronic Lyme symptoms can include:

β–« Fatigue β–« Joint pain β–« Neck pain/headache/TMJ β–« Seizures β–« Facial paralysis β–« Sensitivity to light/sounds/smells β–« Nausea/GI problems β–« Muscle pain/cramps β–« Difficulty breathing β–« Heart issues/tachycardia β–« Pre-syncope/fainting β–« Peripheral neuropathy β–« Insomnia β–« Mood swings and “Lyme rage” β–« Anxiety, depression, and emotional sensitivity β–« Brain fog/difficulty concentrating β–« Unexplained weight loss/gain β–« Cold/heat intolerance ➑ and MANY more

If you have an unexplained collection of any of these symptoms, there is a possibility of Lyme being the cause.
