SYMPTOMS OF LYME DISEASE

Lyme disease is a master of camouflage and can imitate almost any disease.

It can cause a number of symptoms, such as:

  • wandering pain in the joints, muscles and tendons
  • wandering erythema
  • limb numbness
  • trembling of limbs
  • neck stiffening
  • headaches
  • tinnitus
  • sudden hearing loss
  • convulsions
  • eye problems – the image seen blurred or with spots
  • sensitivity to light
  • feeling of tightness in the eye
  • arrhythmias
  • paralysis of facial muscles
  • chronic dermis atrophy
  • fatigue
  • sleep disorders
  • fever
  • symptoms of flu
  • disorders of the autonomic nervous system
  • short memory disturbances
  • chest pains
  • enlarged lymph nodes
  • stomach and intestinal pains
  • weight gain or loss
  • irregular menstruation
  • bladder sensitivity or disorders
  • depression
  • confusion or difficulty in thinking
  • getting lost, losing one’s way
  • blackouts, daze
  • mood swings, irritation
  • and many more.

Due to such a large variety of symptoms, Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease or psychiatric disorders and is treated respectively according to the methods and measures adopted. Misdiagnosis, however, leads to incorrect treatment.
