With the recent news that Lyme disease has spread to all 50 states and Washington D.C., there’s never been a more important time to be vigilant about the early warning signs of contracting the infection. I partnered with Healthgrades to bring you Signs and Symptoms of Lyme Disease You Might Not Know About.
The initial symptoms of Lyme disease may be overlooked by many healthcare providers. But some symptoms, particularly Lyme carditis, can be life-threatening. Furthermore, Lyme carditis may be under reported, so the actual cases of the condition may be higher than the 1% the CDC states.
Regardless, pay attention to how you feel—if you think you’ve been exposed to Lyme disease or any tick-borne infections, seek the advice of a Lyme-Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD). The details on how to locate a LLMD are coming soon.
