Watch: Symptoms & Signs of Lyme Disease
Lyme disease exhibits many symptoms including fatigue, heat exhaustion, joint pain, fever, nauseous, insomnia, and more. It is important to know these symptoms so that you can get properly treated in a timely manner. Make sure you listen to patient stories, educate yourself and be aware of the signs.
Lyme is curable if caught early enough and is usually treated with 2-3 weeks of antibiotics, but even with treatment 10-20% of patients still face persistent symptoms. Sometimes you may need extended antibiotic treatment or to pursue alternative methods of treatment. You can learn more about this in the Supplementing Treatment category.
