“A systemic, tick-borne disease with protean manifestations, including dermatologic, rheumatologic, neurologic, and cardiac abnormalities.”
Initial symptoms may include a rash that appears like a bullseye around the spot of the tick bite. Lyme disease can affect the nervous, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular systems.
Additional symptoms are feeling tired for no specific reason, flu-like symptoms, stiff neck, myalgia, and arthralgia. Let’s focus on arthralgia, also referred to as arthritis, among people living with Lyme disease.
Must-Know Lyme Disease Transmission Facts
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) suggests that the number of reported Lyme disease transmission cases every year is really ten times that estimate. Instead of 30,000 cases a year, they feel it is more like 300,000 cases. This means that a tick infected with the Lyme disease bacteria of B. burgdorferi is transmitting the infection to 300,000 or more humans.
So, what is it about the transmission process that makes it so easy to become infected and develop Lyme disease? Most people think it is as simple as a tick bites a human and voila, they have Lyme. However, it is much more than that.
Understanding the Lyme disease transmission process can help you take steps toward prevention. That’s why it’s important to take a look at the essential must-know Lyme disease transmission facts.
