Could That Mysterious Fever Call for Lyme Disease Treatment?

Have you fallen ill with a fever that won't go away? Are you the outdoors type? Have you spent a lot of time this summer roaming the woods, hiking, camping, climbing, hunting or fishing? Could you have a tick bite that you are not even aware of? If so, you might have contracted lyme disease and need to consult with your doctor about the appropriate lyme disease treatment.


Dealing With Lyme Disease

IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN (INJURY) . . . Dealing with Lyme Disease and other neurological injuries.


What do you know about lyme disease treatment? Lyme disease occurs in most of the United States and is spread by deer ticks which are often only the size of a pin-head. Because of their small size, their bites often go un-noticed. If the tick is infected with lyme disease, a prominent rash will appear around the site of the bite within three to thirty days. The rash can spread to a radius of several inches around the bite.

If left untreated, lyme disease can be very serious, causing long-term muscular, joint and neurological damage. Fortunately, lyme disease treatments using antibiotics are usually effective if started early in the course of the disease. It is important to see your doctor for an accurate diagnosis of lyme disease any time you suspect you may have been bitten by a potentially infected tick.
