Lyme disease

How do you know if you may have Lyme disease or co-infections?

If you have been bitten by a tick or live in an area with high tick activity, you may be at risk of Lyme disease and coinfections. Symptoms of Lyme disease can include fever, fatigue, and a characteristic “bull’s-eye” rash. However, Lyme disease can also present with non-specific symptoms that mimic other illnesses, such as flu-like symptoms, joint pain, and neurological issues. Additionally, Lyme disease can be accompanied by coinfections like Babesia, Bartonella, and Ehrlichia, which can further complicate diagnosis and treatment. If you suspect you may have Lyme disease or a coinfection, it’s important to seek medical attention promptly and undergo testing to receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
