“What Is Lyme?”
Lyme disease is an infection caused by a spiral-shaped bacterium called a spirochete. Transmitted by both Black-Legged and Lone-Star ticks, it may present with flu-like symptoms and a characteristic “bullseye” rash. Unfortunately, these recognizable symptoms are not always present, and patients may suffer impairment to their joints, heart and nervous system without diagnosis for years. These symptoms along with encephalopathy, joint pain, and fatigue, may become chronic despite early antibiotic treatment. Ticks carrying the Lyme disease spirochete Borelia Burgdorferi may also transmit Babesiosis, Bartonella, Erlichiosis, Anaplasmosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, adding complexity to patients’ symptoms, treatment, and diagnosis.
We are on a mission to spread hope and strength, rallying behind the many Lyme organizations offering substantial support to the hundreds of thousands of children and adults living with tick-borne illness.
