Lyme disease is a tick-borne bacterial illness that can cause skin, heart, joint and nervous system problems. It can be difficult to make a quick and accurate diagnosis and some people may experience serious symptoms including muscle and joint pain, fatigue and cognitive weakness for years after the infection. But there are steps you can take to help alleviate these symptoms.
Lyme disease patients who are diagnosed early and receive proper treatment usually recover rapidly and completely.
