How to Test for Lyme Disease and What to Expect
There are many symptoms of Lyme disease. Having any of them is an excellent reason to seek medical help. If you are lucky enough to find the deer tick or notice a red rash that forms a circle anywhere on your body, seek help immediately. You can receive antibiotics and may have a great chance of eliminating the infection.
Most people with Lyme disease are not this fortunate.
As the Lyme infection spreads through your body over time, symptoms worsen and become chronic. The symptoms mimic those of other disorders, leading to a misdiagnosis. This is why you must recognize and document your symptoms and work with a Lyme literate doctor to classify your symptoms better.
Everything You Need to Know About the Lyme Disease Rash
If you have a circular rash anywhere on your body after being bitten or in contact with a deer tick, or after being in an area where ticks may reside, you could be infected with Lyme disease.
The Lyme disease rash is a sign that you are already infected.
Many people receive a rash when they have been infected by a deer tick carrying Lyme bacteria. Reports say between 70 and 80 percent of people with Lyme disease will have a rash. This number also tells us that even if you don’t have a rash, you can still have Lyme disease.
Lyme disease is a condition you do not want to leave untreated as it can progress and cause widespread damage throughout the body. The more you know about the disease, especially about the rash associated with Lyme disease, the quicker you can get medical help to eliminate it.
Dr. Morales on the COVID-19 Vaccine for Lyme Disease Patients
Please watch Dr. Morales providing useful information regarding the COVID-19 vaccine for Lyme disease patients. We hope that this will help our followers better understand the vaccine as he discusses the autoimmunity phenomenon in both conditions as well as exposes controversies and myths surrounding the topic and ultimately provides useful tips to follow.
Lifestyle Changes with Lyme Disease: How to Best Adapt
Lyme disease is much more complicated than its physical symptoms. While they can be debilitating, other areas of your life are also affected, forcing you to make lifestyle changes. Depending on how long you have been dealing with Lyme, the more significant the impact on your whole life.
You may be realizing that you must adapt your way of living. You must learn to live your life with Lyme disease. Doing so means making big changes in your career, personal relationships, and even how you have fun.
