A strange disease has been attacking people. It is Lyme disease that is a bacterial infection that is acquired by the bite of an infected tick. The first symptom usually appears in the form of a rash, although not all people have it. As the infection spreads, body aches, stiff neck, tiredness, fever, chills, swollen lymph nodes and headache may occur.
Its diagnosis is not easy since many of its symptoms are common to other diseases such as the flu. Until two weeks have passed since the infection, the laboratory tests will not be clear in the detection of the pathology and that many times there is no awareness, on the part of the affected person, of having been bitten by a tick, which makes it difficult the diagnosis.
An antibiotic treatment can cure most cases of Lyme disease. The important thing is to start it as soon as possible, since when it starts before, healing will be faster and more complete. If the disease is not treated, severe headaches will go further, accompanied by stiff neck. You can also have arthritis with severe pain and inflammation in the joints, and even cerebral palsy, with loss of muscle tone or fall on one or both sides of the face.
Intermittent pain in the tendons, muscles, joints and bones, palpitations or irregular heartbeat, episodes of dizziness, shortness of breath, inflammation of the spinal cord, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet or problems with short-term memory , may be other symptoms.
