These are only the early on symptoms. As for later symptoms, they include sever headaches, increased or worsening EM rashes, sever joint pain and swelling, facial or Bell’s palsy, intermittent pain, heart palpitations or an irregular heartbeat (Lyme carditis), dizziness, shortness of breath, inflammation of the brain and spinal cord, nerve pain, shooting pains, numbness, or tingling in the hands or feet, and problems with short-term memory.
Even though most cases of Lyme disease can be treated with antibiotics, it is still extremely important to detect the illness early on.
For those of you that are worried about getting the disease, don’t worry, there are things you can do to help prevent yourself and others from getting bitten. An example of this is using insect repellent.
Another thing you can do is make sure to take ticks off the second you see them crawling on skin. The only problem with this is the second a tick bites you, you can be at risk for receiving Lyme.
Make sure if you see any of these symptoms on yourself or your children to call your doctor as soon as you can.
