A lot of facts about Lyme disease are still under research. It is transmitted by a specially shaped bacteria called spirochete bacteria. It is transmitted by black-legged deer ticks and can have a range of symptoms that mimic those of many other ailments. The reason why Lyme is still difficult to diagnose is that it has a wide range of symptoms that mimic the symptoms of other ailments. Every individual reacts differently to the Lyme bacteria, and the symptoms may also vary. You may have some or all of the symptoms mentioned below when you have Lyme disease.
The Lyme tick bote will be in a solid red oval shape. This can appear anywhere in your body and expands until it is resolved naturally over time, if not treated. That’s why most of the people do not notice the rash. Check with a doctor if you have a flat rash shaped like a bull’s-eye.
The early symptoms are often flu-like. You may feel tiredness, lack of energy, and exhaustion. This fatigue can take over your body and can be severe, which makes it easy to point towards Lyme fatigue.
One of the early symptoms of Lyme can be joint pain, inflammation, swollen and stiff joints. You may feel the stiffness in a limited range of motion. The pain can travel to different body parts and can be confused with joint problems due to ageing, genetics, or sports.
Around half of the people have flu-like symptoms like headaches, dizziness, muscle pain, fever etc. over a week of infection. Your symptoms may not be that severe, and you may not even think that it is Lyme. It is difficult to distinguish Lyme flue from common flu or viral fever.
Night sweats and speel disorders
The body temperature may rise or fall during night time, which may wake you up from time to time. You will also face sleep disturbances due to body pain, and your face may feel flushed.
Cognitive decline has different degrees, and it can get severe in later stages. At first, you may find difficulty in concentrating at work, and you may have to think harder to remember something. You may also have a lot of confusion while making decisions or travelling on a familiar route.
Sensitivity to light
You may feel uncomfortable in bright indoors, and sudden light exposure may even blind you are a moment. Around 16% of the adults with early Lyme were found to have blinding light sensitivity, and they needed glasses indoors and outdoors.
